Testimonials

  • Still people tend to take shortfilms on melodramatic ideas. Feel like shortfilm industry is trying to imitate Feature films. In short, it was mainly a pack of tear-jerkers. But i felt refreshed as i watched the documentaries

  • Quality of films seems elevated thatn the previous festivals, still it doesn't sync when it comes to Music Video Category. 9th IDSFFK witnesses a new generation of documentary makers keen on documenting life in various hues.
