The Hindi Cinema Blog loves writing about Indian films but how about inspiring our readers to submit their own film about the country we are all fond of?
The Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has organized an exciting global film competition named the 'India Is' Global Video Challenge 2011, inviting the entire world to participate. You can be an amateur filmmaker, traveller, photographer or none of the aforementioned people and still be a part of the challenge.
The initiative has intellectual and politician Shashi Tharoor, as well as world renowned film maker Shekhar Kapur, as its promoters. Those too shy to participate can watch the submissions from people all over the world, sharing the way they see India as colourful, creative or about its presence throughout the world To see these films click here.
Given that the competition is open to people from all walks of life and all countries, the international-minded Hindi Cinema Blog is particularly happy to relay the information in hopes that you will get inspired and share through film your view of what makes India fascinating.
