    1. Dear Varun,

      We have noted your comment and concern. The films are collected at a collection center and not TASI’s office so I doubt you spoke to a person from TASI. You may have spoken to some person at that center when you called. But do not worry. Please give us a day and someone will surely get back to you about your films.

      Best regards,
      Team TASI

  7. thankyou,

    I am actually nervous because the deadline is approaching and yet I haven’t received any confirmation. Thanks For Understanding my Concern.

    #I have one query too..
    when will the filmmakers be notified whose films have been shortlisted.


    1. Hi Varun,
      Once the pre-selection jury views and short-lists the films, the names will be displayed on the website. You can check the TASI website in the second week of August.
