  2. hello sir,
    i wanted to know that if students have completed his/her project under the guidance of respective faculties of his/her institution. Then the student category will be elligible or not as the project will be directed and produced by the faculties only.

    1. Hi Priyanshi,

      A film may be submitted to the competition as a Student Film as long as the students have worked on the film. We understand that teachers and faculty members will be guiding the students for the film. If you see the form, it actually states that for ‘producer’ the institute name may be mentioned.
