Shimla residents have joined hands to host two-day Shimla Film Festival 2014 from April 12 to promote Himachali talent in film making.
Addressing mediapersons here on Tuesday, Himachal Private Media Limited director Ravinder Makhaik, also director of the film festival, said the two-day Shimla Film Festival (SFF)-2014, is aimed at providing a platform to the film makers that include amateurs from the state to showcase their talent.
Governor Urmila Singh will be the chief guest for the award ceremony on April 13. "Where technological advancements have made it possible even for amateurs to take to filmmaking aggressively and even school education boards like CBSE have introduced filmmaking as a school subject, yet the gap in both quality and quantity between Himachal Filmmakers and those in rest of India or global filmmakers is very wide. Hence it is a humble attempt to bridge that gap," he said.
