Leading on the success of its first Global Content Festival in 2020, ZEE5 Global, the largest streaming platform for South Asian content, is back with yet another year of the celebrated content festival. Aiming at eliminating linguistic, cultural, and geographical boundaries, ZEE5 Global’s ‘Global Content Festival’ is a first-of-its-kind initiative that will give budding and independent filmmakers a global platform to showcase their work to an audience across 190+ countries.
In 2020, the first edition of the Global Content Festival saw a massive response, with ZEE5 Global receiving hundreds of entries from countries like Australia, Bangladesh, Netherlands, India, Dubai, Singapore, the UK, the USA and more. Singapore-based independent filmmaker Shilpa K Shukla emerged as the Global Content Festival winner with three entries, Kathaah@8, Tashi, and Dots, in the Drama films category.
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said, “After the huge response we got to the first edition of the ZEE5 Global Content Festival, we are thrilled to now announce the second edition. The ZEE5 Global Content Festival is a special initiative we started in 2020 to give independent filmmakers and content creators from across the globe an opportunity to showcase their work to audiences in 190+ countries. Last year, we saw some stellar entries coming in, and we look forward to this year being even better.”
The festival provides content creators with the biggest opportunity to attain global fame instantly, and experience a diverse environment.
