Launched in November 2020, the first ever Global OTT Content Festival saw entries pouring in from filmmakers and creators from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, UK, USA, Australia, Singapore, Dubai, and The Netherlands. Filmmakers experimented with genres ranging from drama and mystery to lifestyle and across formats from documentaries to short films and music videos, presenting their diversity and creativity. The festival received entries in a motley of languages including Hindi, English, Marathi, Bangla, Tamil and Malayalam.

Singapore-based independent filmmaker Shilpa K Shukla has emerged the Global Content Festival Winner with 3 entries in the Drama films category ([email protected], Tashi and Dots).

Tashi is a bilingual English-Hindi film shot in Singapore, which tells a heartwarming story about family and relationships. DOTS is a film made during the lockdown about ten emotionally isolated people connecting over an imaginary app called ‘DOTS’.

While previously many of Shilpa’s short films have won international awards, this is the first time that her content will be available to watch on a streaming platform for a global audience.

From Bangladesh, the winners include Shobdojot, a rock music video, by musician Kazi Riad Omar, popularly known as Rock-A-Baula, who has played almost all instruments in the song.
