A reminder from Puri...

A great idea. Festival with *your* own films...

Bring Your Own Film Festival <byoffpuri@gmail.com> writes in to say:

The countdown has begun. BYOFF-3 is just a few days away. Remember the dates? 21st to 25th of February on the beaches of Puri. A HUGE thanks to all of you for the overwhelming response that we have received this year. Submissions are still pouring in. We have been receiving queries whether we have closed our registration for films after the 31st of January as stated on the website. We would like to clarify that a last date was mentioned only to bring some amount of sanity into the whole organization of the festival. We would try our best to even accomodate a filmmaker arriving with his film on the eleventh hour, and that, dear friends, is the spirit of BYOFF. But alas, schedules have to be made, screenings have to be arranged and souvenirs have to go to the press on a given date - and so on and so on and so on... So those of you who think that it's now too late to send in your film, we would ask you to please register your film within 8th February. Please send details, synopsis and stills as we are going to the press with the souvenir on the 10th. of this month. Those of you who have alredy registered, thanks once again. Please let us know your travel plans. There was also a serious omission on our part on the registration form as there was no field for "Editor". Please send us the name/s of the Editor/s of your film/s in a mail with " Subject: Editor" by 8th February (if you would like to acknowledge his/her contribution!) . So folks, it's time almost to start packing your bags. >From all of us in THE BYOFF TEAM Cheers! and Bhadaas! Dho!!

Jeevika: South Asia Documentary Festival, which began in 2003, aims at capturing the livelihood challenges faced by the rural and urban poor and bringing it to the attention of current and future policy makers. Over the years, Jeevika has been successful in advocating for the cause of numerous entry-level entrepreneurs - rickshaw pullers, street vendors, farmers and forest-dwellers.

The premier event of the festival to be held at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi will be the awards ceremony from 20-23rd July 2007, which will culminate four days of screening for the top films. This year, we expect the festival to attract over 30,000 attendees, connoisseurs and students of arts and films.

In addition as part of the festival tour, the award-winning films will travel and be screened in premier schools and colleges in over 20 states in India and other organisations working on livelihood issues as well as in our South Asian neighbours.

Over the years, Jeevika has become an increasingly popular and news-worthy event as well as an important catalyst for positive social change. The Film-makers whose films have been showcased in the past include Rakesh Sharma (of the Final Solution fame), Sanjay Barnela (Turf Wars) and Shohini Ghosh (Tales of the Night Fairies).

Jeevika has been widely reported both in the print and electronic media like the India Express, Times of India, Business Standard, The Statesman, Asian Age, Pioneer, Tehelka and aired on NDTV Film Club. The festival has won support from film industry leaders like Nandita Das, Rahul Bose and Deepti Naval, senior journalists like Kuldip Nayyar, Aruna Vasudev and other distinguished persons like Swaminathan Aiyar, Deepinder Singh Hooda, Rajinder Singh and Kiran Bedi. The Sir Ratan Tata Trust has been our main partner and sponsor in the journey so far.


Plans for Jeevika 2007 include:
 Receiving over 160 entries from amateur, professional, and student filmmakers throughout South Asia.
 Extensive media coverage prior to and during the event
 4-day screening festival at India Habitat Centre
 Award ceremony followed by a policy discussion including leading policy makers on livelihood issues
 Top awards worth Rs. 2 lakhs
 Screenings across colleges, institutes and schools
 Advocacy campaign with policy makers
 2 day Workshop on research and documentary filmmaking
 National Seminar on Policy Reforms
