Umesh Kulkarni, famous for his award winning short films like Vilay, Gaarud and Girni is setting up Arbhaat Short Film Club at the National Film Archive of India (NFAI) in Pune.

The club will be inaugurated on April 18 at the NFAI at 6:30 pm. The screenings will be held on the first Thursday of every month at the NFAI. Short fiction, animation films as well as experimental films from international film festivals and film schools will be screened.

“The Arbhaat team organized a workshop on the basics of short filmmaking in January. About 130 people registered for the workshop and at the end of it we had 40 short film scripts. There was a demand for a sustained activity around short filmmaking,” said Kulkarni.

The aim of the short film club is to expose filmmakers to the different ways in which the short film medium can be explored.

Registrations are open for an annual membership fee of INR 1200. For registrations, contact arbhaat@gmail.com
