Whistling Woods’ International joined hands with Disney+Hotstar to stream films made by students
Whistling Woods’ International has collaborated with Disney+ Hotstar for streaming entertaining and thought-provoking short films on the OTT platforms made by the candidates of WWI.
Some of the short films made by WWI students have already been streaming on the OTT platform, and it is expected that over the coming weeks, more selected films will be uploaded on a regular basis.
These films will be available to the audience under the ‘Short Films’ section. Newly uploaded films can also be found in the ‘What's New’ section.
Covering a wide range of categories, the short films that would appear on the OTT platform include Alaksha, a fast-paced drama set against the backdrop of the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai (the winner of The Perfect 10 award at the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, 2018).
The list also includes Hoop Diaries, a 2014 sports drama centred around the story of a girl overcoming a deeply personal trauma and Manorath, inspired by Rabindranath Tagore’s short story ‘The Postmaster’ which won the Best Screenplay award at the Pune International Film Festival, 2015, among others.
Through this venture, audiences across India can choose inspiring and thought-provoking films created by our talented students.
