Being Human is the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. This festival is planning to conduct a series of events across universities in the UK in the month of November this year. We had pitched a proposal to screen a short film on Periyar in the festival. To our great delight, the proposal has been accepted.

By making this short film, we have a unique opportunity to present the personality and thoughts of Periyar in an internationally renowned cultural event in the UK. After screening the film in the festival, we plan to send it to short film festivals and also to educational events in film and media studies departments in global universities. This award provides a great opportunity to take the thoughts of Periyar to a global audience. Hence, we plan to involve professional actors and expert technicians for the filming, which will involve considerable costs. Vilasini Ramani will be directing the film. We can share further details on cast and crew if needed.

We seek funding from interested contributors for this endeavor. We will give due recognition of your support in the film credits.  

The filming will take place in Chennai from 28 July. We would be grateful for funds well in advance which will enable us to make the necessary arrangements.
