Filmlt is an exciting multi-cultural project that helps students make short films on their city’s heritage. The project is funded by the Helen Hamlyn Trust (United Kingdom) and is a part of Open Futures Filmlt programme. The students are trained in content development and technical knowledge through a series of workshops. So far, over 2,500 short films (time duration of 2 – 3 minutes) have been prepared by the students in India. These films on heritage and culture are later shared with students in the United Kingdom. 

Filmlt is in the 6th phase (first year) and spread out in nine cities. Including – Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata and Mumbai. Every year it culminates through a FilmIt Festival wherein, overall best movies are screened and schools are awarded for their efforts.
