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.
