After getting all the necessary permissions in Kargil we opened up our submission on 19 July, 2017. We were not sure how the response to the film festival would be like. DBG Film Club was very clear that, we won’t charge single money in regards to submission fee. DBG Film Club also had a rule in order to ensure that each submission is given the careful consideration it deserves; it instituted a cap of 25 submissions in the feature film category (National & International) and 50 submissions for the remaining category for the 2017 season. However due to the phenomenal response to the Film Festival, Team Kargil iff had to close Film submission almost a week before. July 26, 2017 saw the last Film submission. Kargil IFF received close to 350 Films in total.

Earlier our Film festival used to accept physical DVD of films for screening. We used to face loads of problems in DVD copying, playback, damage in courier etc... Most of the people reading this article might wonder, Why not online then?
The internet connectivity in our area is not strong. It takes time to download and since all the film makers send their best resolution video we would face a lot of problems downloading it. We also had many test downloads getting failed as well. So even though we had this idea of multiple Film Festival then, this never materialized because of this one reason. Cut to Present, DBG Film Club is re-located to Mumbai and we have access to all sort of technology and that’s what made us announce our most loved film festival to be restarted again. DBG Film Club will partner with FilmFreeway for all the film festival submission until further notice.

The first edition of Kargil international Film festival was held in 2012 and it was called Awam Ka Cinema and back then the team comprised of 3 team members namely Sajjad Hussain, Shah Alam & Meraj Siddiqui. Later on due to many technical issues the festival never took off. However after the formation of DBG Film Club, it plans to host many Film festivals across the nation and also Workshops on Cinema, Talk show, Open Discussion Forum etc... which eventually restarted Kargil International Film Festival. Under the banner of DBG Film Club there is already “Darbhanga International Film Festival” running successfully for the past 4 years and the next edition will mark its 5th year. Stay tuned for many more events to happen under the banner of DBG Film Club.
