Karan Johar wears many hats; one of them is that of a judge. Karan has judged several reality shows. He will now join the league of judges of short films. He will be the judge of the TIFF x Instagram Short Film Festival, which is in its second year now. The contest starts on August 9 and will go on till August 20. The Jury’s Choice Award and Fan Favourite Award winners will receive a trip to Toronto to attend the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September. All the films require to be 20 seconds or less.
This will be one of the few short film festivals that dedicate it to the short format films available on the social networks. The winning videos will be broadcast on the TIFF Instagram channel and Instagram’s official channel.
With this, Karan Johar comes closer to the short film genre. He has earlier said that he is keen on working on either a web series or a short film. His best friend, Shah Rukh Khan has already taken the short film plunge and his closely working with Netflix. SRK also announced that Red Chillies is now working on making original content for Netflix.
