After successfully tying up with several film festivals in the past including college film fests, Eon Films in association with Lakecity International Short Film Festival (LISFF) has tied hands with Aahan Film Festival once again for the second consecutive time for its 2015 festival. Now in its 5th year, Aahān in a minimalistic frame of time have managed to create a legacy by transcending beyond the ordinary. The fest has been providing a platform to all aspiring filmmakers to showcase their talent.
“This year, Frames has tied up with Eon Films for the second consecutive time for its 2015 festival and will be receiving a package of 60 films for this association which includes a retrospective of Spanish films as well. “This tie up is in a way to promote the film makers on a consolidating platform and help them reach out to various others festivals through LISFF,” says Mohan Das, Festival Director, LISFF and founder of Eon Films. “Similarly, in the past, we have also given a consortium of films to Darbhanga International Film Festival, SIES Frames Film Festival, Cortokino Short Film Festival and others.”
Quoting on this tie up, Ankit Tandon, Festival Programmer - LISSF says, “It’s a great honour for us at LISFF to have a strategic tie-up with Aahan again where we are going to promote our festival. We are going to use this set-up for exchange of ideas and information to make our festival better as well as help LSIFF in gaining its foothold by promoting the same on our website and amongst our participants as well.”
With a strong focus and mission to promote and unearth cinematic talents of short and documentary filmmakers from India and abroad, Aahan festival is a completely student-run festival and with no ties to any agency whatsoever.
“The LISFF which started off as an International Short Film Festival is undergoing a major revamp and will now be adding feature films also in its fold. From this current edition, LISFF will turn LIFF - Lakecity International Film Festival and will be catering to not only short films, documentaries and public service films but also provide a platform for feature films as well,” concluded Mohan Das.
