The film festival run of Shefali Shah’s Someday appears to be continuing.
The pandemic-themed short film will now be presented at the Bollywood Festival Norway after screening at the Indian Film Festival Stuttgart.
Shah, who tried his hand at directing with this production, revealed the news on Saturday.
Someday has previously been selected for the International Short Film & Video Competition at the 51st Annual USA Film Festival.
‘Thalaivii,’ ‘Chehre,’ and ‘Toofaan‘ will also be shown during the festival
The Delhi Crime actress announced the news with her followers on her Instagram account.
She said on Instagram, with a photo of the short film’s poster, “Elated to announce that the short film written & directed by me, Someday is screening at Bollywood Festival Norway!”
The festival, which began on September 10, will also include films from prominent Bollywood studios like Thalaivii, Chehre, and Toofaan.
After the lockdown, Shah shot the film in two days
The Norwegian film gala is also presenting Esha Deol Takhtani’s production debut Ek Duaa in the short film and documentary sections.
In terms of Someday, Shah has stated that once the lockdown was lifted, she filmed the film at her home with a five-person team “in two days and packed up early on both days.”
This endeavor enabled her to realize her ambition of becoming a director.
‘Someday‘ was concerned with the gap established between individuals during a lockdown
Shah based the notion of Someday on the distance (physical and emotional) that was established between individuals as a result of the epidemic.
“During the lockdown, one of the things that really bothered me was that if not the disease, the distance will kill you,” the 49-year-old had previously stated.
It’s about “two women, united by the umbilical cord, separated by a door.”
Shah is now working on a number of projects
The Ajeeb Daastaans actress stated that sending her film to prestigious film festivals was a deliberate move because she wanted to know “where I stand as a total newcomer in direction.”
Following Someday, Shah went on to direct Happy Birthday Mummyji, which she also wrote.
She has several forthcoming projects as an actress, including Darlings, Delhi Crime 2, Jalsa, and Doctor G.
