What Is It?

Asia’s largest film club, Shamiana – The Short Film Club from Mumbai is coming down to Chennai next week to host it’s “Pocket Movie Night” in Swirl, The Gateway Hotel IT Expressway. Done in concert with the Taj InnerCircle programme, Pocket Movie Nights are short films screenings done across the country in Taj Hotels by Shamiana.

As a film club, Shamiana is known for sourcing and presenting the best of the best short films in the world (by obtaining the much-coveted licensing rights), along with hosting interactive sessions post screening where they talk about movie trivia and the film itself. This upcoming event is free to enter and will feature three short films, one of which is this year’s best live action short film at the Oscars, Silent Child.

Who Is It For?

Movie buffs and film critics, you’ll enjoy this event as it’s being hosted by the crème de la crème of short film clubs at a beautiful location (all Taj hotels are beautiful, no?). We particularly like that they’re making world class movies accessible to all buy obtaining the required licenses to screen them, as previously common folk like you and I wouldn’t be able to see such films. Even if you’re not an ardent movie buff, the films being screened are captivating enough to engage any audience, so we recommend all our readers check it out.

Why Should I Go For It?

The films being screened, speak for themselves. Films like these are hard to find and we think it’s awesome that Shamiana is coming back to Chennai and bringing its range of world class short films with it. So what are you waiting for?

Do note, that you are required to RSVP for the event.
