New Delhi: 

The founder of The Great Indian Film Festival (TGIFF) and CEO of the production house Cinemaddicts9, Vevek Paul has been awarded as Asia’s Most creative Entrepreneur in Dubai.

He was honoured at the 15th Edition of Asia Africa Business & Social Forum 2021 (AABSF).

He was awarded the title of ‘Asia’s Most creative Entrepreneur’ and ‘Asia’s Most Innovative platform for Short Films & Documentaries’ for his innovative and inclusive platform for short films, The Great Indian Film Festival. 

“I feel humbled to receive the award for Asia’s most creative entrepreneur at the Asia Africa Summit Dubai, I feel creativity is an innate part of every entrepreneur and business owner’s life in today’s dynamic world and it’s rather a very important facet to reach out to the global markets,” Vevek said.

Vevek is a dynamic talent who started his career as a young finance hotshot. But he found his true passion and calling in the world of cinema. To realise the true potential of his passion for filmmaking, Vevek started his own production company, ‘Cinemaddicts9’, which has gone on to produce award-winning shows like ‘Science of Stupid’ starring Maniesh Paul and ‘Animals Gone Wild’ featuring Jaaved Jaaferi. He has also backed several short films and music videos in collaboration with domestic as well as international artists.

“The Great Indian Film Festival started as a small initiative from Gurugram in India, and today it has reached its third year as a global celebration of short-form cinema. As the founder, I feel a sense of pride in receiving the award as Asia’s best platform for short films and documentaries. We have a mission to give every short film and documentary maker, a global platform.”

As a young filmmaker, Vevek found great success with his short films, winning several awards at prestigious events like the Vancouver Film Festival. This success sparked a fire in him, to give back from what he received and hence, his brainchild, The Great Indian Film Festival, was conceived.

TGIFF is a one-of-its-kind touring film festival for short films and documentaries, providing an excellent platform for young and experienced filmmakers alike to come together and share their creations. TGIFF aims to travel around the world, bringing together a global audience to a cultural extravaganza, and providing a unique red-carpet experience to the filmmakers.

The 2021 edition of The Great Indian Film Festival, originally destined to be in Mumbai, was delayed due to the pandemic and was eventually organized with great aplomb in New Delhi. 

Hundreds of cinephiles fled into PVR Cinemas, one of the premier cinema chains in India, and the attendees included the likes of, the guests of honour H.E. Hayet Talbi (Ambassador of Tunisia to India), Anthony Miranda (Counsellor of Foreign Affairs, US), celebrity host and actor Maniesh Paul, actor and playwright Sohaila Kapur, social media sensation Ssumeir Pasricha and AAFT founder Dr Sandeep Marwah.

The day-long event screened over 60 films from over 12 nations, including the Oscar-winning short film, ‘The Neighbor’s Window’, and the Oscar nominees, ‘Brotherhood’ and ‘Sister’. The event also had special screenings of Maniesh Paul’s ‘Hichki’, ‘Spotless’ starring Sonu Nigam, ‘Dream 1’ featuring Manjot Singh and ‘Decoding Shankar’, a documentary which gives an up and close look at the life of Shankar Mahadevan.
