The DIFF also announced an increase in the prize money for the three winning projects. The prize money has been raised to US$25,000 from the existing US$15,000 in each category.

The DFC received recommendations from 107 filmmakers from 18 countries in the first year.

Shivani Pandya, managing director of DIFF, said in a Press release, “In its third year of operations, the DIFF Industry Office has widened its base. There was an overwhelming response to the office’s events and networking opportunities last year. I am very proud that 25 per cent of the projects at the DFC last year are now in pre-production, and that we are able to raise our production grants and continue this valuable initiative for another year. “
