Within the frame work of our Festival we provide teaching and learning forums where experienced film makers can come together with future film makers to impart wisdom and influence the evolution of film and the new media world. Our goal is to merge the divine aspect of the human with technological advancements to create infinite creative possibilities in the future of film, entertainment, education and communications.
