The V Studios Short Film Contest Winners have been chosen! Having watched lots of outstanding and inspiring submissions from all over the world, the panel of judges composed of V Studios and The V staff – including V Managing Director Pathman Senathirajah himself – were struck by the contestants level of craft and ingenuity. IR filmmakers embraced V-Con themes and presented their story in creative and wonderfully entertaining masterpieces.

For its commanding cinematic storytelling and arresting visuals, and its compelling message that with hard work and determination achieving your dreams can be your success story , Chimera by Bhageerath S from India stole first prize!  Second prize goes to Nasib BR’s Tainted Glass while Swagat Shetty’s Venu The Flute Player wins the Third Prize! Congratulations to the winners and let’s watch all three movies now!

FIRST PLACE: CHIMERA

Dreaming what seems to be an impossible dream can be likened to ‘Chimera’, a mythological creature which represents hopes or wishes, but in fact is illusory or impossible to achieve. This film shows how a young girl confronted by a simple dream was able to overcome her challenges through sheer determination. The film won first place for its outstanding visuals, its inspiring message, and its representation of a commonly shared hurdle within many of our networkers’ lives.

SECOND PLACE: TAINTED GLASS

Two ambitious guys start losing hope of making it big in the network marketing industry. They learn all the wrong lessons from past bad experiences which leave them with a tainted image of the business. But, all this changes after a single incident that happens in their lives.

THIRD PLACE: VENU – THE FLUTE PLAYER

Venu is the story of a cantankerous old man, a disheartened little girl, and a tune on a flute that changes their lives. The film is about belief in one’s own abilities and an ability to see life in its greater purpose.
