FILMSAAZ is an International Film Festival of Short Films & Documentaries for Non-feature films, which is one of the largest multi disciplinary art & cultural festival in India dedicated to the exhibition of short films, documentaries, music, art & cultural advocacy panoramas.
First of its kind in India to be organized by a University, it was first held in 2008 in Aligarh Muslim University and organized by the University FilmClub.
This festival aims to promote and encourage an awareness, appreciation and understanding of the art of Indian cinema and to inspire cultural exchange through films and crave out the hidden talent and inspire an urge among the young filmmakers.
THE MISSION & OBJECTIVE of the FILMSAAZ is to give short films, documentaries & other submission(s) an identity that differentiates this art form, from the conventional big screen.
FILMSAAZ showcases films that celebrate diverse cultures, aesthetic traditions, socio-political and relevant themes and other works that challenge and transcend expectations.
Our particular interest is in films that deal with novel themes, cutting‐edge technology and unusual visualization, traditional as well as those that dissent in form, technique or content from the mainstream.
