Royalty Share Program

  • Royalty Share Program

    Shaan-e-awadh International Film Festival’s main mission is to provide directors with an opportunity to showcase their creations to the worldwide audience. In correlation, we have started providing a service for directors which generates revenue for their short films that are submitted to the Festival. This program aims to provide benefit to directors once a profit is made through the distribution of movies.

    Under the Royalty Share program, our goal is to portray short films as a powerful cultural and educational communication tool. SAIFF is supported by Splash Etcetra, a company which possesses multiple routes of distribution to public agencies and educational institutions in various markets. We place our marketing efforts in cultural and educational fields where films are utilized in many programming styles such as screenings, broadcastings and DVD packaging. Moreover, whenever an opportunity arises, we will approach other markets and try our best in marketing films for entertainment purposes as well.

    Through this program, in addition to the monetary benefit for directors, many viewers will be introduced to the educational and cultural value of short films. Any income generated through the activities explained above will be remitted to your bank account (Kindly note that the Royalty Share Program will be applicable only after a profit has been made). We sincerely encourage all applicants to take advantage of this opportunity in generating additional revenue which will not only assist you in your further production, but also increase the awareness of short films in India and worldwide. Participating in the Royalty Share Program will NOT be provided to the members of the SAIFF Preliminary and International Jury.
