In our lives, we all must have fantasized about the life of Lights! Camera! Action! We get to live multiple lives and bring out distinct characters printed on the paper alive on the screen to tell a tale of love, hate, friendship and more. Yes, I am talking about life in lenses, life as a content creator holds the power to give powerful messages and influence the masses. Cinema or films have been developing since its emergence and if we look back to the history of cinema or film making we realize that this has come a long way.
In that context, today, with limited attention span, fragmented focus and easy access to various streaming platforms, short films have become a major source of entertainment, weaving a myriad of stories in a short span of time.
With various film festivals recognizing the ingenuity, popularity and demand of this new format, short films today have become quite a sensation with their unique storytelling style.
Esperanza meaning hope in Spanish is an annual e-media fest and a fundraising campaign organised by the media students and members of Inspiria TV that aims to unite the students from all over India to raise funds and help those suffering from COVID-19. This small initiative of Inspiria TV brings together students and provides them with a platform to showcase their talent. Our world has been fighting this deadly virus for the past couple of years and through all this time hope for a COVID free world has kept all of us going. We are all well aware of the fact that unity is strength, and we have seen our nation united in fighting this deadly virus and day by day coming closer to its dream of a COVID free nation.
After the grand success of “Esperanza,” last year that helped us raise funds for one of the leading child rights NGOs, Save the Children, and it’s The Invisible campaign. This year, Inspiria TV is hosting its second version of India’s Largest E-media fest “Esperanza 2.0” to help generate funds for those affected by the wrath of COVID-19.
