What is Chittagong SHORT ?
Chittagong SHORT is a group of people who are working with creative and progressive thinking that build brand, make desire to uphold humanity. Established in 25 May, 2015 with a view to encourage and to motivate young filmmakers to learn and make good quality Bengali films. NOKSHA, an emerging advertising firm has been working since 2003 in Chittagong. To encourage the youngsters especially the filmmakers NOKSHA started a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project titled Chittagong SHORT with the support of দৈনিক আজাদী, the first newspaper of independent and sovereign Bangladesh. It is a fundamental objective of Chittagong SHORT to strengthen the network of filmmakers including scriptwriters, directors, artists and production houses though they are independent and autonomous in their own arena.
Chittagong SHORT Film Festival (#CSFFBD) aims to promote and recognize those who have walked the extra mile and shown creativity to the community. Its purpose is to show outstanding independent films, recognize and support new filmmakers and to enhance understanding of cinema as art among diverse audiences. We encourage filmmakers who created their films with a low budget to submit their film to CSFFBD. The judgment criteria of the submitted films are new ideas, experimental cinematography, talented work of actors and an independent point of view.
Chittagong (officially renamed as Chattogram) is the commercial capital of Bangladesh, one of the most beautiful and charming places of the country. Chittagong SHORT upholds the beauty and importance of this city to the whole world through the festival.
