GANDHI & CO:
One day, a chance occurrence leads Mintoo to proclaim Mahatma Gandhi as his role model, but Mintoo is far from embodying the Mahatma's ideals.

Awards and Selections: Best Gujarati Film, National Film Award 2018, Audience Choice Award, UK Asian Film Festival, 2018 and Film Bazaar Recommends, 2017, Official Selection: Toronto International Film Festival, 2018, Official Selection: Shanghai International Film Festival, 2018, Official Selection: International Children’s Film Festival of India, 2018, Official Selection :Melbourne Children’s Film Festival, 2018.

GREY SOLAR GAME: 
The circumstances for the lives of orphans, and particularly those of minorities, have always been rather dire, but the pandemic seems to have ended even their slightest hope to survive. Seemonta Halder presents this message in his 18-minute short, through a subtle but also pointed and quite pragmatic fashion.

THE HORSE FROM HEAVEN:
Kuxhol is travelling to the city with Goti, the horse from heaven and the fastest in the world. Kuxhol tells the amazing story about their adventures to everyone he meets on his way. Everyone finds it bizarre in the beginning as they can see that Goti is not a horse, but a donkey. Well, eventually his audience starts believing in his tale and the Heaven's Horse.
