MUMBAI:  Are you a movie maker waiting to debut on the silver screen? Viacom18 Motion Pictures (VMP) is giving you an opportunity to be the one. It takes the lead to recognise talent in movies by providing an exclusive opportunity for budding filmmakers to showcase their talent through a visionary initiative christened ? ?Cineshorts.?

The contest requires participants to submit a short film of five minutes, based on a theme that resonates with the upcoming film of the studio.

To up the credits, VMP is all set to flag off this engaging enterprise with its upcoming mega release Mary Kom on the theme ?Against All Odds?, which celebrates the unbreakable and resilient spirit of Mary Kom. An eminent jury comprising Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Omung Kumar along with VMP COO Ajit Andhare among others will judge the competition.

Andhare believes that there is a need to democratise the entertainment space so that anyone with the vision, drive and talent can find an ecosystem of support and nurturing to make a film.  ?Cineshorts is a platform that ventures into empowering talent by mentoring and showcasing their promising work. We are certain that this will usher in a new talent pool for the industry.?

Filmmaker, Bhansali echoed the sentiment. ?It?s a wonderful platform, I mean, when I started off in 1994, with Khamoshi it was a very difficult process. Today?s youth come out with new ways of looking at life. They bring in a new perspective, their whole take on a story, screenplay, edit or shot taking is completely different from mine. So this is an amazing opportunity for me to see what you have to offer.?

Expressing her support of this mega platform, actress Chopra said, ?When you want to establish yourself in life, you do not always need somebody to aid you but what you need is immense belief and a strong confidence in yourself. So, if I did and so did Mary Kom, why can?t you? When you have a platform like Cineshorts why don?t you just go out there and show them your talent so the whole world knows about it??

Marking the winning edge, the top five winning films will be officially premiered on Pepsi MTV Indies, along with winning significant cash prizes. The contest ends on 30 September 2014.
