Saving The Saviour, documentary film on Wular Lake Kashmir has been selected for an international film festival on Water by We Art Water Foundation, Madrid, Spain.

Jalal Ud Din Baba,  a filmmaker from Sopore Town of Baramulla district said: “I have no words to express my gratitude to the universally acclaimed Jury in particular for liking the Billa’s narrative, work and recognizing the redeeming difference he’s made to Wular.”

Water causes concern, water inspires and cinema is the best instrument to spread the reality of the most precious and endangered well. The record 2,400 registered participants across the globe from 127 countries had submitted their short films themed water under the three categories micro-documentary, micro-fiction and micro-animation to the film festival. Out of 2,400 films, only 37 films made it to the final selection list 12, 15 and 10 films respectively.

These finalist pieces of the contest will be spread through different platforms, such as the webpage and the social networks, and will be screened at the Roca Gallery, Spain, and spaces in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Shanghai and London.

The Jury will announce the winners of the Festival during the month of June 2018, at the award ceremony that will take place at the emblematic space of the Roca Madrid Gallery, Spain.
