Short filmmakers get recognition from Indian Documentary Producers Association

The Indian Documentary Producers Association (IDPA) on March 2, 2007 awarded gold and silver prizes to various low-budget short filmmakers in the country. The awards, which are held annually, range across various categories of short films – fiction, documentary as well as ad films.

Aditya Seth, treasurer of IDPA, said that the 50-year old Association was largely a community of documentary and short filmmakers in the country. “The activities we hold throughout the year include screenings, seminars and workshops. The idea is to create a common platform for filmmakers,” he said.

Some of the winning films included ‘The Right to Survive’, a film on the conflict between the survival of the fishermen community and the extinction of turtles by Rita Banerji and Shilpi Sharma, who got a prize for Best Cinematography and Script Writing. ‘Riding Solo to the Top of the World’ by Dwarak Warrier got a prize for Sound Design and Editing. It is a documentary film that travels with a biker on his journey from Mumbai to the North.

Some of the students who bagged prizes included Sandeep Modi for his short fiction film ‘Bilori’, which is an exploration of the problem of girl child education in India and Akhila Krishnan for her documentary called ‘Words in Stone’.

Some of the jury for the awards included media professionals like Ravi Deshpande, Archana Menon, Santosh Kale and academician Jeroo Mulla.
