Star Movies Select HD has launched yet another curated offering titled Select Short Stories, introducing Oscar award-winning and nominated short films for the first time on Indian television. Star Movies Select HD will air Select Short Stories exclusively every night at 9pm from July 8.
The festival will comprise short films like Pentecost, ToyLand, Stutterer, A Femme et le TGV among others. These award-winning short films showcase a range of emotions – from a child’s innocent passion to a man’s journey of overcoming his fear and finding true love. From the gritting tale of childhood during the holocaust to the sheer strength of relationships. These films might be short but they leave behind a big impact on its viewers.
The core of the marketing campaign is to #KeepItShort and get rewarded. Star Movies Select HD is at the centre of this short films’ wave and is living the promise of making a short film – written by its consumers. Star Movies Select HD is calling out to all aspiring storytellers to share a concept or plot of their original short story via the channels’ official Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages (@StarMoviesIndia) with the hashtag #KeepItShort. One entry will be selected and transformed into a short film that will be showcased on Star Movies Select HD.
Star Movies Select HD will also conduct Select Sessions with celebrated Short Film directors from across the world. The audience will not only get a chance to see the director’s work but also meet and discuss various aspects of short stories and storytelling.
