Each unit of the grid features the best of the films that have made its way to the festival till now. Each page has poster designs of the best films coupled with the festival’s own design on the theme “Let’s go BIG with shorts” giving it a more interactive and image-friendly appearance.
“The re-design represents a reinvention for the way filmmakers think and decide about the festival,” says Ankit Tandon, Festival Programmer - LISFF. “Featuring 12 heads, the new website offers a wide assortment from across sections ranging from About us to Vision to Awards to Submission and including special sections on Contests as well as Press that has Press Releases for the Media. It is also coupled with videos on the festival featuring the festival’s theme song “Bhopal me Bharat Darshan hai” on lyrics by Prabhat Mishra and specially composed by Sourabh Chatterjee, a promising Music Director,” added Ankit.
"The Indian short films and documentary film makers are constantly accessing the internet to reach out to various film festivals on various types of mobile devices, whether at home or on the go. As a result, this transition required us to take a fresh and innovative view of how our users are likely to interact with our website," Mohan Das, Festival Director, LISFF 2013 said.
“Our new graphical interface is a step towards making it easy for those who have little time to go through each section. Also, with a growing segment of users who access websites from tablet and mobiles, we wanted to give them a big and colourful picture of the festival keeping in tune with our theme line “Let’s go BIG with shorts “. We believe, the steps we've taken will enhance the overall user experience with the content and imagery they would desire to see on the screen during the festival. This in turn is going to give them the added impetus needed to push themselves to the cinema halls during the festival for a wonderful cinematic experience," he added.
