  1. HI

    2)- I AM A STUDENT , I MADE MY MOVIE AT HOME ,NO PARTICIPATION OF MY INSTITUTE IN THE MAKING .BUT AS PER YOUR 4th RULE WE HAVE TO GIVE A LETTER OF ARE INSTITUTE ,,HOW CAN WE GET IT PLZ CLEAR ARE POINT …
    THANXS

  2. Hi Anshul,
    You mentioned you are a student – so all we need is proof that you are indeed a student of some institute or college – it does not matter whether you made the film in the institute or at home. You can still send your entry. The form link is given above.

    Hi Swati,
    Yes, you can send 2 films made after August 2011 but make sure you send them on 2 separate DVDs and with 2 separate forms.

    Regards,
    Team TASI

  3. I am a student and thus participating in student’s category. I wanted to know if I can use rigged character those have a free license?

  4. Hi Suprateem & Ragini,

    If you are using a ready rigged character, you need to make sure it is copyright-free and has no usage restrictions. Also, you need to make it clear in your entry form that you have used a ready rigged character in your film.

    Team TASI

  5. Hi Gora Chand,

    Yes, if you are not a student, you can submit your entry in the Independent Professional Category.

  6. sir,please give the information that,the movies should contain animation?because we are planning for the live action short film,so can we send only live action film with out animation?

  7. Hello Hari,

    The competition is for Animation/VFX only, not for purely live action films. Sorry!

    – Team TASI

  8. Thnak you for your quick reply sir,
    Sir,I am the faculty head,so can i send students short films with live action which includes some vfx?

    1. Hi Hari,

      As per the rules, to qualify, the film must contain a substantial amount of non-live-action, by the way of animation or VFX. And the total duration of the film must not exceed 10 minutes. What you could do is send the film and then let the pre-selection jury decide whether it qualifies or not.

      Regards,
      Team TASI

  9. “Only films made after August 2011 will be eligible”?

    I can understand above line.

    consider we have one animation developed in 3ds max 2009 that means can’t we submit it? should we have developed it 3ds max 2012?

    1. The guideline is pretty clear in itself. The date has nothing to do with the software used. The film should have been made after August 2011. When did you actually make your film?

      – Team Tasi

  10. hi! sir…
    i have made a short film… with my friend.. we are both students… but from different institute…

  11. can i submit form and dvd at a time … if i will post on 15th den it will not deliver u on 15th so would u accept it

    1. Hi Sheetal,

      You need to make sure the entry form and DVD reaches us by the 15th which means you need to courier it in advance.

      Regards,
      Team TASI

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Amol,

      OK, please attach a scan/photocopy of your college ID with the form as proof and do send in your entry soon as there are just 3 days left for submissions to close.

      Regards,
      Team TASI

  16. HELLO ,,SIR WAT ABOUT RODSIDE ,,ITS OK IF I AM NOT SELECTED BUT I JUST WANT TO KNOW THT HAVE U GUYS GOT MY MOVIE COZ I HAD NEVER GOT ANY CUNFIRMATION

    1. Hi Anshul,

      Yes your entry was received but was not selected by the jury. We receive 200+ entries every year therefore we cannot individually acknowledge receipt of them all. The finalists names are online now.

      – Team TASI

    1. Hi Nikesh,

      We received your film and it was screened for the jury as well. If the name is not in the list, it is because it has not been short-listed for the TVCA awards. Better luck next time!

      – Team TASI

    1. Hi Akhil,

      I’m sorry, there is no participation certificate as we receive hundreds of entries. If the jury decides that a film deserves special mention, then that film is given a special certificate.

      – Team TASI

  17. me n my group participated in student short film categor;title of the film-“I wish to”,hope you watched our movie;its our 1st movie on which we worked.Sir,it would be so kind of u if we could see the movies online which are being selected,so that we get the idea of it,n could work harder to participate in the compotiton next year.

  19. Hi Devang,
