In 2020-21, PSBT along with the Foundation for Universal Responsibility (FUR) of His Holiness The Dalai Lama, announced a ‘Film Challenge’ in response to the pandemic and its impact. 

The Challenge invited films – less than 10 minutes in length, fiction and nonfiction – under two categories: Professional and Amateur.

The Challenge invited films – less than 10 minutes in length, fiction and nonfiction – under two categories: Professional and Amateur.

The Challenge received a huge response – a total of 766 entries. 

It was quite a daunting task to go through all the entries – but we were helped by a competent Selection Committee – Anandana Kapur, Hemant Gaba, Pooja Iyengar and Subasri Krishnan.

A long list was then sent to the Jury, consisting of Anjali Monteiro, Bina Paul and Sudhir Tandon. 

On March 28th, 2021 we announced the results, bringing a unique PSBT endeavour to an end. 

26 awards were given out – of which 8 were supported by FUR.

A shortlist of 25 was also created – to submit nonfiction film proposals to PSBT for up to two filmmaking grants.
