Jaipur in Talks for its Booming Short Films Industry

Short films made in Jaipur are gaining recognition and getting appreciated in both national and international film festivals. The short films industry is rapidly booming in the artistic pink city. There was a time when for films you had just one place to go and that was Mumbai. But now talented artists and filmmakers from Jaipur are making films here only. They are building a world of films that are being appreciated by worldwide audiences.

The increasing craze of short films

The craze of short films is building rapidly in the Jaipur city. Filmmakers in the city are focusing on small scripts that speak volumes. Sharing your vision with a short story is what most filmmakers are focusing on. If we see stats, the numbers have increased exponentially in the past few years. More than 250 short films have been made in the Jaipur city, out of which many have received appreciation from audiences of several reputed international film festivals.

Opportunities for artists, musicians and dancers

The booming short film industry in Jaipur has created a number of opportunities for other people as well. Artists related to theatre, music and dance or acting, are getting exposure in short films made by the city folks. Seeing the increasing number of short films and filmmakers, a handful of music and editing studios are also coming into the picture of this artistic city. These music and editing studios help in building the sound and editing portion of the films in the city itself.

Films on social and thriller themes

Directors are making films on women, children, traffic, social issues and the rising issues of the nation. Even films on thriller themes are being developed. But not much work is happening on ‘heritage and culture’ of the city.

The films which are being made in the Jaipur city are mostly developed using sharing and support basis. This reduces the filmmaking cost to a great scale. Women directors and filmmakers are becoming more and more active day by day.

Devendra Khandelwal, who has his name registered in Guinness Book of World Records for short films, told that the most important part of any short film is its script. The sole concept of a short film is to tell a story in brief time.

Hanu Roj, the founder of JIFF (Jaipur International Film Festival) shared that they received around 250 films from Rajasthan for screening last year. On average around 100 films are being created every year and the number is increasing.

Even trailers and teasers are getting launched
