About Us

Alpavirama is comma in Sanskrit - a precious pause reclaimed for reflection and repose.

There is something intrinsically special about short films. Short films are like life itself, with multiple colours and nuances, each transient yet forever.

This year, Alpavirama is growing from a Global South festival to an International festival, inviting filmmakers from around the world.

We look forward to receiving your works and take a precious pause for a brief amount of time to reflect and repose on our world.

The 6th Alpavirama International Youth Film Festival will take place between 7-12 November, 2022 at the National Institute of Design in Paldi, Ahmedabad, India.
