A group of young independent filmmakers, cine technicians and some veteran film personalities from Assam, NorthEast India who are part of a group called ADDA, which in Assamese means ‘informal gathering’, has taken up the cause of promoting alternative, new and creative cinema in the region.
ADDA is the first ever short film festival in the whole Northeast region (the country of seven sisters). We promote new movie makers, exchange of knowledge, information, ideas, and culture between Northeast and all over India. ADDA laid emphasis on short films and we are lucky to have got a good response not only from the intelligentsia but also from common people. We need a creative approach, which is modern, young and fresh in outlook for filmmaking.
