Welcome to FirstCut, the all India festival of student films organized by FLAME University, Pune!
Set up to provide an active platform for all young filmmakers in the country, FirstCut encourages them to explore the medium of film as a reflection of the society they live in as well as a potential agent for change. Believing that freedom is essential for any creative work, we at FirstCut provide our participants the complete freedom to choose their own themes and styles of
work. While offering opportunities in fiction as well as documentary filmmaking, FirstCut also has a unique ‘Nano’ film category that aims to challenge the students’ creativity in making super short films.
As part of FirstCut’s final event on 18th and 19th February 2017, shortlisted works shall be screened for a live audience and an eminent panel from the film industry. Screenings will be followed by panel discussions with renowned film personalities as well as interesting workshops and talks. Winners from each category shall be awarded a cash prize, certificate and trophy. All shortlisted works shall also be put up on FirstCut’s YouTube Channel and other social media platforms.
