Short Film: UNHIDE, 3min., India, Experimental

Is freedom Gender-based. The answer is an emphatic NO. But does anyone care about this? Can’t a woman in this country dress as she likes, walk as she wishes, speaks as she thinks. What if she is a professional or a housewife or a call girl her consent is needed for anything and everything.
This short movie isn’t a man-bashing exercise, rather an attempt to include both the sexes to unlearn their stereotypes with regards to women. A tough law alone cannot fight against the atrocities perpetrated against woman. The psyche of the man is nurtured both by men and women around him. From a friend to the father, from a brother to a sister everyone should take the onus on to them and bring out the best human in every man around them. Beyond this, self-discipline and self-regulation are the keys to tame the untamed mind. Ultimately this world belongs to both the man and woman.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
