Short films have no limits: Filmmaker

“Your aim should be the strongest and you must not waver. Never lose your aim and hope. The film industry is very difficult to make an impact in, just like any other field. Keep trying and don’t lose focus. You will reach your destination one day or the other,” said acclaimed cinematographer, Bhuvan Gowda, currently best known for his work on the multilingual blockbuster that is KGF Chapter 1.

He was speaking at the inaugural function of the ongoing Rushes National Film Festival (RNFF) at St Joseph’s College (AUtonomous) on Friday, February 22.Gowda encouraged students to pursue their passion for films, emphasising on how short films can be produced with the use of minimal equipment. He said: “Rushes Film Festival is a very good platform, and I pray for its success.”

He added: “Short films generally have no limits, no borders and hence is a very good platform to prove your creativity. Short films can be shot even on phones: There’s no need for big cameras or bulky equipment.” The inaugural session of RNFF also featured Arthur Rambo, a 2018 French short film where Alain, an underprivileged child who recites poetry to drivers stuck at the signal for an income and struggles to be accepted. RNFF, the national-level festival, is hosted annually by the Rushes Film Club from the college’s Department of Communication.
