They say books are nothing but thoughts put together in words. Same is the case with film too. Film is nothing but imagination captured together in a magical box called camera and showcased on a big screen. Film has the powerful ability to accurately emulate mood and tone, bringing a story to life. Because film sees light, much the same way as the human eye and the captured image feels natural and real.
Film is a language. You choose your vocabulary, your dialect. The stocks, the way you expose them, the filtration, the lenses, the lighting, the color palette…all those things are where you refine your story.
FFVA provides you a dais to share your thoughts, to put them across in form of striking visuals, which till now have been just in your mind!
