Singapore-based independent filmmaker Shilpa K Shukla has emerged as the Global Content Festival Winner with three entries in the Drama films category (Kathaah@8, Tashi and Dots).

Kathaah@8 is the world's first anthology in eight languages, written, produced and directed by a single filmmaker. ‘Tashi’ is a bilingual English-Hindi film shot in Singapore, which tells a heart-warming story about family and relationships. ‘Dots’ is a film made during the lockdown about 10 emotionally isolated people connecting over an imaginary app called ‘Dots’. While previously many of Shukla’s short films have won international awards, this is the first time her content will be available to watch on a streaming platform for a global audience.

Among the winners from India, Preet’s short film ‘Gray’ is the story of how a man who is discovered to be gay after he gets married under pressure from his family.  The film handles the very sensitive subject beautifully with its well-written narrative and unforgettable performance. ‘Echoes’, a drama film by Himanshu Pathak and Payel Saxena, brings us a heart-to-heart conversation between a mother and her daughter, bridging the distance in their relationship. ‘Janeev’ (translated: Realisation) is a Marathi short film by Bhausaheb Lokhande, in which kindness and empathy are portrayed to be the winning emotions over judgement and ridicule.

Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, Zee5 Global, said, “The idea behind launching the Global Content Festival was to give independent filmmakers and content creators a platform through which they could showcase their content and find audiences across the globe, especially during a difficult year. And we’ve been overwhelmed by the response we’ve got, with entries just pouring in from across continents. It’s been quite a task to pick out 15 gems from among so many fabulous entries. Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Zee5 Global Content Festival, and we’re extremely happy to bring our viewers all these fabulous new stories streaming free on Zee5 from February 25.”

All the winning and shortlisted entries will be streaming on Zee5 in 190+ markets across the globe. The list of winning entries below:
