Actress Richa Chadha whose has always impressed us with her impeccable and effortless acting is no stranger to being a jury member of prestigious film festivals. Now the actress soon will be the jury member of one of the biggest Indian film festivals in the world. Post the phenomenal success of the virtual Indian film festival of Melbourne 2020 last year, IFFM is now all set to host both online and in cinemas next month.
The 12th edition of this esteemed festival which will be in cinemas from August 12 to 21, and online Australia-wide from August 15 to 30, is now welcoming entries for the IFFM Short Film Competition. The jury for this year’s Short Film Competition will have producer, actor, and activist, Richa Chadha alongside national award-winning filmmaker Onir.
The theme for this year’s short film competition is Modern Slavery and Equality. This year’s theme for the Short Film Competition aims at addressing the threats to these principles in the contemporary world.
On being part of the jury, Richa says—
Being a part of IFFM Short Film Festival 2021 as a jury member is an incredible feeling. To be back here again, but as a judge this time, is very exciting. We are sure to expect some astounding short films on the theme of modern slavery and equality, both of which are complex subjects. Also, speaking from experience, I am aware of how difficult it is to tell an entire story within a short amount of time, that too on such an important theme so I’m really looking forward to all the short film entries this year.
IFFM Festival Director Mitu Bhowmik Lange says—
We are more than thrilled to have Onir and Richa Chadha be the jury for this year’s Short Film Competition at the IFFM. They are exactly the kind of judges who not only inspire others but have a huge body of supreme work to represent their expertise and flair in their respective fields and we are honored to have them as our esteemed judges at the 2021 festival.
