Participate in the 50-Hour Filmmaking Challenge, of India Film Project which is Asia’s Largest Content Creation Festival and an ultimate destination and platform for writers, storytellers, poets, composers, filmmakers, cinematographers and editors to let their creativity be recognized and thrive. Over 35,000 filmmakers and 10,000 minutes of short story content will be generated.

The theme will be revealed at the beginning of 50 hours on September 28th at 8pm. The categories include Professional Filmmaking, Amateur Filmmaking and Mobile Filmmaking. With no restrictions on choice of locations, equipment and actors, the participating team which may range from 1 to a maximum of 20 members, will have to script, shoot, and edit their film, within two days and two hours and submit their final production. The winners in the professional and amateur categories of this challenge receive epic DJI Drones.

A participant who submitted his film for the Professional Category, Kundan Sad hailing from Nagpur, created a film named ‘Faulen’ under the banner, ‘CreatEwitty Media Notions’, states, “The experience was amazing. It churned out great creativity, and showed us the importance of team work and precise management in times of tremendous pressure. As we opted to make two films in the same 50 hours, the major challenge was time management and aligning the entire team to achieve one common objective."

Ritam Bhatnagar, Founder, India Film Project, comments, “With the 50-hour filmmaking challenge this year, we are seeing a lot of professional filmmaker participation, as well as a surge in the mobile filmmaking category. With mobiles delivering great video results, a lot of amateurs are picking up mobiles to tell their story.”


  • The filmmaking dates will be on Friday, 28th September 2018, 8.00 pm onwards to Sunday, 30th September 10.00 pm.
  • The India Film Project will be held at NSC, Worli in Mumbai on 13th and 14th October, 2018 from 10am to 9pm, parallely across 6 stages.
