“6th Advantage India” is a short film contest organized by Pocket Films in association with River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, Italy.
Aligning with the ideology of the festival, every year through Advantage India, our attempt is to identify and give global visibility to talented film makers. It opens the doors for the 3 winning films to reach out to audiences and other festivals in Europe through screening at River to River.
By organising contests, especially in association with respected International Film Festivals, Pocket Films provides a fantastic platform for film makers to show case their talent not only domestically but worldwide.
River to River is the only festival in Italy totally devoted to films from and about India. This year will be its 13th edition, starting from 22 to 28 November in Florence and from 29 November to 1 December in Rome, under the direction of Selvaggia Velo and the Patronage of the Embassy of India.
In its 2012 edition the Festival has hosted the great Amitabh Bachchan as guest of honour in Florence.
