It is said that a “Picture speaks a thousand words” but when it comes to films it can actually translate into an epic. The strength & reach of a motion picture has always defined new benchmarks & more often than not managed to make an indeligible mark on the minds of the audience. This phenomenon gains ground more so with respect to issues pertaining to environmental degradation & nature conservation. Discussions & forums on environmental conservation though critical, have lost their potency & often end-up as drab & cliched to a great extent. Thus when spreading the message of nature conservation remains vital, spreading it effectively becomes the cornerstone of this grave issue. Ecofest’09 aims to get some of the best creative minds in the business for spreading the message to the utmost extent.The idea behind inviting & screening these creatively crafted films is to make a strong impact upon the audience, which is the first step towards urging them towards concrete action.


The filmmaker is making a film on a real life incident from history and literature about a character called the Bhawal Sannyasi based on the book called the Princely Imposter. He is in the preprodcution stage when he gets the bad new that he can't shoot in the location he had selected during the recee stage, so his assistant advises him to compromise by shooting in available cheap village locales, which threatens to change his plot, but he has to go ahead with the shoot,so he does, sacrificing his relationship with a girl who is being pressurized by her parents to marry an architect, in the process. What happens to the lives of both the film maker and his protagonist unfolds in the film.

Sadho Poetry Film Fest 09

Sadho Poetry Film Fest is the first of its kind in India, and perhaps in this part of the world.

This unique biennial festival showcases the finest Poetry Films from all over the world. It also aims at building collaborative linkages with festivals & organizations in other parts of the world.


All these years, novels and movies have always covered stories in which the main characters from the West travel to India where it becomes a journey of self-discovery. These characters are introduced to a very meaningful and spiritual world very different from the Western world, and through this journey their souls undergo changes. “BARE FOOT ON CAMPUS” tries to adopt a different perspective while turning this pattern of story-telling and narrative style upside down. In our story the main characters do not go to India, but India comes to them … An Indian girl named SHIVA comes to a university in Turkey as an exchange student and starts changing the lives of the students around her. And we follow the whole story through the eyes of our main character, a student named DENİZ. The story reaches its climax when the shocking secret of Shiva is revealed towards the end. The story is a well-balanced mixture of comedy and tragedy and it unfolds smoothly keeping the viewers in constant wonder what’s going to happen next.


Director: Krisztina GODA.


Gábor is an office cleaner. Wearing overalls and a baseball hat, he seems insignificant. Working on the night shift, Gábor rarely has any contact with his employers, yet he learns everything about them by thoroughly analyzing their garbage. Since he is almost invisible, nobody suspects that Gábor is, in fact, a con man who carefully chooses his victims by the trash they leave behind. His targets are mostly disillusioned, lonely women. In a few months he destroys all their romantic illusions by taking all their savings. Having an unusually high IQ and an ability to assume various personalities, Gábor is an expert in manipulation. When he gets a job at a psychologist's office, Gábor meets Hanna, an injured dancer who happens to be the daughter of a millionaire. Insecure and vulnerable, Hanna seems to be the perfect victim. Gábor pretends to be a doctor who can cure her body and her soul, an irresistible offer for a desperate woman. Everything goes according to plan until Gábor falls in love with Hanna and has to make a hard decision between her and the money.


Director: Subrat Kumar Sahu.
In order to understand how modern tools of development clinically destroy self-reliant communities and yet succeed in influencing the entire nation to celebrate the outcome as ‘progress’, come to Kalahandi, in the state of Orissa in India! However, those who had originally inherited the earth and kept the natural order inviolate for millennia are now out on the street in attempts to protect their lives, livelihoods, identities, and dignity...


Director: Abhijit Das Gupta.
Something remarkable happened for the first time in Asia. 16 physically challenged persons wrote a new chapter in the history of the Asian soil. They participated in the “Beyond Belief expedition challenge”. In two nights and three days, they traversed through mountain paths, fording water bodies and navigating through forests infested with snakes and scorpions to prove to the world that those labeled “disable” are able and capable. The expedition was to showcase their endurance power, skill and ability of the “differently able” persons. They went to the deep forests around the Garumara range in North Bengal, lived in camps and passed through areas that normal people would dread to dare. The 4 teams : Alpha: Asit Kr Pal – Instructor Sukanta Mondal – impairment of Upper limb Jaydev Mondal – impairment of Lower limb Nitai Khan – Visually challenged Dipankar Goldar – Speech & hearing impaired Bravo: Chandana Biswas – Instructor Probir Sarkar – impairment of lower limb Binod Kr Singh – impairment of upper limbs Tarun Bag – visually challenged Pinto Goldar – Speech & hearing impaired Charlie: Kamalika De – Instructor Rimo Saha – impairment of upper limb Sanjay Das – impairment of lower limb Kalidas Das – visually challenged Santanu Sen – Speech & Hearing impaired Delta: Tapas Kangshabanik – Instructor Bholanath Dolui – impairment of upper limb Ujjal Ghosh – impairment of lower limb Shyamal Kr Roy – visually challenged Subhankar Goldar – Speech & hearing impaired The area is the habitat of king cobras, leopards, elephants… Pushing a wheel chair across shallow jungle rivulets tested human stamina to its limits. This was an epic saga of man against elements… flesh against stone…a quiet communion with nature. All about the insatiable urge of human beings to tread un-trodden grounds. 16 individuals ventured not to conquer mountains …. Forests …. and rivers… but to conquer themselves Their odysseys – Beyond Belief.

Magma has always focused exclusively on the short film, considering it as a separate art form, as a format allowing the experimentation of new styles and the creation of new trends. The festival offers a chance of visibility for high-value works that are often precluded from the main distribution channels. Its aim is to build a bridge between the audience and the endless forms of expression of the short format.
