While the AniMela Festival was inaugurating its 1st ever edition, the International Mifa Campus was hosting its "Talents" workshop for five lucky candidates, all winners of the call for applicants launched late last year.
From 16th to 19th January, the International Mifa Campus was in Mumbai for a 4-day workshop with some incredible creators. Warmly welcomed by the Aniverse & Visual Arts Foundation’s teams (AVAF, a non-profit organisation founded by Kireet Khurana, Archana Trasy, Anne Doshi, Neha Jain and Tehzeeb Khurana), experts who were hand-picked by our coordinator, Delphine Nicolini, were there to provide individual support for each project.
These 4 intense days had Reza Riahi (Director), Johanna Goldschmidt (Screenwriter) and Delphine Nicolini (Consultant) relishing in the Indian culture and the bond they struck up with each other to create a genuine human experience.
Out of the 60 projects submitted, these 5 were the lucky ones who participated in the workshop:
- Hide and Seek, Krishna Chandran
- M.O.M (Ma on a Mission), Rituparna Sarkar
- Rising Tides, Pari Satarkar
- Lala, Isha Mangalmurti
- Table for One, Debjyoti Saha and Dhruv Sehgal
At the end of the 4-day workshop, the project leaders pitched their projects for real at the AniMela Festival. The jury congratulated all the participants, praising the quality of their presentations. However, one project really made an impact, Lala by Isha Mangalmurti, congratulations to her!
What stood out was the overall sheer enjoyment, captivating storylines, fresh new visual identities, and especially the eagerness to share it all with you, for real, at the next Mifa.
