The 0110 International Digital Film Festival New Delhi is back –
bigger, better, bolder and brilliant as ever.
The 0110 IDFF is founded by Madhureeta Anand, the Festival Director, with the objective of creating a venue for new films and setting up vistas in the sphere of digital cinema. In three booming years, the festival grew to become international, comprising of eminent jury and audiences alike. While the first edition was an Indo-Brit collaboration, the second one developed into a South Asian – British fest and by the third edition, it became an all-embracing international film festival.
This year, 0110 IDFF returns with its fourth edition. Joined by Mediaguru and QED as partners and UFO Movies India Limited as its title sponsor, The 0110 IDFF has metamorphosed into The UFO 0110 International Digital Film Festival.
With more strength, it continues being an exclusive medium of interaction between filmmakers using the digital medium and will be an annual event.
The festival is being held mainly at New Delhi. And as the festival grows, the future promises to expand its scope in many more cities.
The festival will see awards in various genres of feature films, short films, animation, documentaries and student films. And if this isn’t exhilarating enough, there will also be a competition for digital art. Two more exciting competitions, ‘Films shot on mobile phones’ and ‘Film in 6 days’ will be held during the duration of the festival capturing the spirit and essence of digital filmmaking.
The UFO 0110 IDFF has the clear target of egging on fresh film-makers, artists and their work and also, to nurture the pursuit in and promote the arts and media culture among the general public through independent film, video and new media.
