Every year, film-makers from more than 20 countries assemble to take part in the India Film Project -Asia’s biggest film challenge where the teams are challenged to make a film from scratch in just 50 hours.
Sounds crazy, right? But what has us crazy with happiness is that this year, a team from Nagpur has won this prestigious competition as they came up with the winning film in this short time.
