Introduction

The
0110 International Digital Film Festival is back - bigger, better, bolder and
brilliant as ever.

The
0110 IDFF was the brain child of ''Madhureeta Anand'', the Festival Director,
with the objective of designing room for new films and setting up new vistas in
the sphere of digital cinema. In three booming years, the festival grew to
become international, comprising of eminent jury and audiences alike. While the
first edition was an Indo-Brit collaboration, the second one developed into a
South Asian - British fest and by the third edition, it became an all-embracing
international film festival.

This
year, 0110 IDFF returns with its fourth edition. Joined by Mediaguru as a
partner and UFO Digital Cinema as it's title sponsor, The 0110 IDFF has
metamorphosed into The UFO 0110 International Digital Film Festival.

It
continues to be an exclusive medium of interaction between filmmakers using the
digital medium and promises to snowball into an annual event that is a sought
after international film festival.

The
festival will be held mainly in New Delhi. And as the popularity continues to
grow, its scope will be expanded to many other cities.

The
festival will see awards in various genres; feature films, short films,
animation, documentaries and student films. And if this isn't exhilarating
enough, there will also be a competition for digital art. Two more exciting
competitions, ‘Films shot on mobile phones' and ‘Film in one week' will be held
during the duration of the festival which will capture the spirit and essence
of digital filmmaking.

The
target of the 0110 IDFF is to encourage fresh film-makers, artists and their
work and also, to nurture the pursuit in and promote the arts and media culture
among the general public through independent films, videos and new media. In
one voice, 0110 and UFO aims to open up new avenues for digital cinema-making
and enhancing the silver screen experience for film-makers as well as
audiences.

Festival
Partners

UFO
Digital Movies

UFO
Moviez was launched in 2005 by Valuable Group with equity participation from
Apollo International Limited, which is a part of the over $ 1 billion Apollo
Group, a chief business conglomerate of India. In a short span of less than 4
years UFO Moviez has grown into the largest digital cinema network in India
with over 1900 installations receiving movies delivered to them via satellite.

The
company has transformed distribution and exhibition of films in India by way of
its ground-breaking proficiency, infrastructure and distinctive pay per show
business model, bringing in a ‘First Day First Show' system for nationwide film
distributors and cinema owners. The unveiling of UFO has brought into being two
major advantages: Cost arbitrage and Time arbitrage. Not only film distributors
save on account of cost of print, which are obviously not needed in the digital
delivery cinema but also they obtain enormous time advantage by concurrently
supplying movies across the country.

3i,
one of the world's foremost investment funds dealing in technology and
pioneering products, took a strategic stake in UFO facilitating it to stimulate
its go-getting augmentation strategies. UFO envisions offering an exceptional
pay per show business model to the entertainment industry by way of end-to-end
high quality digital cinema solutions through sophisticated technology and
communication networks.

As
such, it will offer a compliant and transparent manifesto to advertisers for
enhanced in-cinema advertising, thus developing the entertainment experience
and making possible for the industry to bring to fruition their true aptitude
by building a worldwide platform of ingenious services.

UFO
Moviez has successfully established a digital cinema system with valuable
facilities, seamless quality checks, sound security features and useful
advantages for producers, distributors, exhibitors, audiences as well as the
nation generally speaking. With such promising endeavours, there is no doubt
that digitization of films has arrived and is here to stay, thanks to UFO.

Mission
Statement of the Festival

The
UFO 0110 International Digital Film Festival returns for the Fourth time. Since
the inception of the film festival, the digital environment has grown from
being a fringe format to becoming a well-accepted medium of filmmaking and art.
However, the range and malleability of the format still makes it the one that
always helms the new, the cutting edge and the brave.

In
this context, the UFO 0110 International Digital Film Festival will be the
nucleus for a movement in Cinema that respects sheer filmmaking. Filmmaking
that is unabashedly what it is; stories that come from the core without trying
to tailor them to appease or to appeal. 
In short, nothing that is on its knees can come in to the festival. The
steps to this cinema need you to stand tall and take a stand.  And your ticket will be your bravery and the
will to tell it like it is.

The
festival will bring in films from all parts of the world on the one hand and
from deep inside India, on the other. Feature films, documentaries, films made
by students, digital art installations and animation and special effects will
all be a part of the festival sections. The aim is to bring local and global on
to one platform and enable an exchange of viewings. This will lead, we hope, to
new ways of thinking, to broadening of bonds and subsequently of horizons.

At
the core of this festival lies the spirit of Independence and a yearning to
break any binding structures.  The only
stricture is quality; the high quality of thought and execution.

The
success of any endeavour lies in its ability to take forward the best from
before and merge it with the new.  In its
first three years, this festival had two stars; their centrepieces and their
points of focus. These were - The Filmmakers and The Audiences. And so this
year too, despite the fact that we will have august and prominent individuals
on our jury, we still intend to uphold the sanctity of loving and respecting
our filmmakers and audiences.

And
so as we flag off the journey towards the Fourth UFO 0110 International Digital
Film Festival, we invite you to join us, to step out of line, and stand with us
on our red carpet. Come join us between the 23rd of February and 1st March
2012  and be a part of this historic
journey.

Past
years - the story so far...

Looking
into 600 films with the help of one assistant in the ambience of her drawing
room, Madhureeta Anand, the cinema avant la lettre, set off a chain reaction
with the first edition of 0110 Digital Film Festival. Anticipated as an Indo-
British one-off forum for interaction between film-makers, the it fetched such
a novel response, that it left film-makers as well as audiences thirsting for
more. It was the first time ever that digital art was played at a cafe. Ekaa
Films started the ball rolling for the 0110 IDFF and made many a short films and
documentaries under its banner. 

The
inevitable second edition had developed into a South Asian - British fest and
the cafe was present again. This was a quantum jump for the festival where
participation went up manifold and countries like Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
participated. Once again the fest was buzzing and bustling, full of life. This
year the jury was a small but important one, actress Tabu, Head of Arts British
Council Alice Cicolini and Festival director Madhureeta Anand, judged and gave
away awards to several important films.

Then
of course, came the third edition, this time a full fledged international film
festival, with films from over twenty countries. And the jury expanded
including jury members like Anurag Kashyap (Director), Sudhir Mishra (Director)
and Rajan Khosa (Director). While Tabu (Actor) came in for the second time as a
jury member. Madhureeta Anand also continued to be part of the jury. They
honoured the best films among a wide range of categories and sections. This
edition also marked the association of media professional Shahnaab Alam with
the festival, who helped to expand the scope of the festival and its success in
Mumbai was largely due to his efforts.

The
festival was held both in Delhi and Mumbai, and saw great works from feature
documentary films like Werner Herzog's - ‘The White Diamond', ‘What The' - by
Simon Ellis, UK, ‘Residencia' - by Artemio Espinosa Mc, Chile, ‘The Bewitched
Child' - by Marikki Hakola, Finland and ‘Oedipus' - by Jason Wishnow, USA to
name just a few.

This
is the only international digital film festival of its kind in the country
showcasing avant-garde digital films from around the world and in view of the
fact that it is also the only one in India to have travelled around eleven
cities; this is clearly a distinctive festival that has carried forward its
celebration for the love of films and art. All in all, it has been a rapid yet
very promising journey for 0110 so far and from what it has to offer in the
years to come, it is undoubtedly following an upward spiral.
