By Utpal Borpujari / New Delhi

“Binnu Ka Sapna”, a short film by Kanu Behl of “Titli” fame, has won the Student Jury Prize for best short in International competition at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival 2019.

Produced by Terribly Tiny Talkies and Colosceum Media, the film made its World Premiere at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival 2019, and was the only Indian Film competing at the festival this year.

Among the films that were in the competition along with “Binnu Ka Sapna” were the latest short directed by Cannes Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul of Thailand. Clermont-Ferrand is known as the world’s largest film festival dedicated to short films and the second largest film festival in France after Cannes.

Behl, an alumnus of Satyajit Ray Film and TV Institute (SRFTI), Kolkata, was the co-writer of “LSD” with Dibakar Banerjee. His debut feature “Titli” premiered at Un Certain Regard in the Cannes Film Festival and went on to win 8 international awards including the NETPAC and the Best First Foreign Film (2015) from the French Syndicate of Cinema Critics.

“Binnu Ka Sapna” is a 32-minute narrative short that goes through the harrowing transformation of a victim into an attacker, with society only serving as a catalyst.

“I’m thrilled with the honour. It was a pleasure to see Binnu connect with a larger audience and to experience their reactions and love for the film first hand. I now eagerly look forward to the film’s release where it truly belongs – in India,” said Behl in a statement.
