Universal Marathi demanding entries of short films for MY MUMBAI short film festival before 22 September 2013. Mobile shoot, animation, social awareness, ad film, international short film are categories of this festival. The number of film festivals in the city has also gone up. Even smaller cities are now hosting short film festivals, something that was earlier restricted only to metros. A major reason for the rise in the number of people making short films is the increased number of mass communication institutes which ask their students to make films as a part of their curriculum.  Although this movement is in its evolutionary phase, the ball has been set rolling and it will only be a matter of time before short films get the attention they deserve. The fact that the city youngsters are making films despite budget constraints is really commendable.  Mobile shoot films will be new showcase for those creative peoples in this My Mumbai short film festival. Many BMM students are mostly taking advantage of it. Independent films are typically made on a very low budget by amateur or professional filmmakers. This festival is aimed at encouraging that independent filmmaking.
