Kochi: A world record holder of short films Dr. Sandeep Marwah inaugurated a new festival of short digital films under the title ‘Mini Movie Festival’ by Clubby at Kochi in Kerala.
“The digitization and reduction in cost of film making have given many more people to showcase their creativity through films. We need many film promoters to come forward to extend help to young minds to explore their talent through these kind of festivals,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios while lighting the ceremonial lamp at the inauguration.
“I appreciate the idea of inviting short films in many languages, as the language of cinema is only emotions.

Many new avenues are available to present your short films,” added Dr. Marwah at the festival.
