About the Competition

Amity Law School is organising 1st National Socio-Legal Short Film Making Competition 2019 in collaboration with National Commission for Women and Legal Bites. The objective of this initiative is to incite the passion in the youth for creating masterpieces to educate, entertain and motivate the society.

There are various socio-legal issues prevalent in the society which needs to be addressed. We come across so many literary sources i.e. articles, policy papers, commentaries, documentaries, etc. covering these issues. But most impactful out of all these sources is a visual representation of any issue. Impact of this lasts for long in our memory compared to other mediums.

“This Film-Making Competition would serve as a platform to ensure that the unheard stories of the women reach the world. It is an incentive to the young people to present the raw reality of the world through moving pictures.” – Chairperson, NCW
