Our selection committee meeting is on during all the week ends of October to select the films to be screened at the festival. We have invited filmmakers, writers, activists, artists, film society friends, teachers and students from Madurai to form the selection committee.
I would like to remind the filmmakers who have forgotten to send their films to our festival. Also Iwould like request them to send their latest films and support the festival which has been consistently taking films to the people for the past 8 years.
