Choosing only three contestants out of so many contestants, it was very challenging even for our examiners. The subject matter of each short film was different, the layout was different, each of the actors had quality acting. So it was very difficult to make a choice. Our examiners have taken great care that no injustice should be done to any subject and out of these, these five short films have become the winners. “
