Indian short to compete in Berlinale’s Generation section
Sonyacha Amba, a Marathi-language short film by Govinda Raju has been selected for Generation Kplus competition at Berlinale 2013. Berlinale devotes its ‘Generation’ section to children and young people with two competitions – Generation Kplus and Generation 14plus.
Eighteen shorts will compete for the Crystal Bears and the Generation Kplus International Jury award for the Best Short Film comprising a cash prize of € 2,500. In 2012, Rajan Khosa’s Gattu won Generation Kplus Jury’s special mention.
This will be Sonyacha Amba’s European Premier. The film was also screened at the Pune Short Film Festival in 2012.
However, no Indian film has made it to Berlinale Shorts, the competition section for short films at the Berlin Film Festival.
