We're here to promote the art of filmmaking in the world of sports and competition.


It is an attempt to bring to India a sports film festival where film and documentary makers get an opportunity to show case their films on various aspects and of different sporting disciplines. There would be various categories in the film festival and submissions would be received from all corners of the world. Each category would have five nominations and finally there would be a winner with the second and third also getting a mention with a silver and a bronze Tiger Paw.

Apart from the submissions, there would also be 4-6 special screenings of acclaimed sports films/documentaries followed by a discussion. During the three-day festival, there would be talks given by eminent documentary makers on the challenges of making a sports documentary.

In all, the Tiger Paw Sports Film Festival brings to life sports stories told visually by documentary and filmmakers.

Whether it is a dramatic or comedic piece, we want filmmakers to share their great stories in regards to the world of sports. We felt that creating this festival would give the many sports fanatics out there an outlet for their love of competition.

Some people have asked us to define "sports". Well, we want to include any subject that deals with mental and physical competition for the sake of winning a prize.

We ask that your film's plot revolve around a competitive theme. We ask to see something other than a film with a sports scene in it that doesn't involve the story line.

Our jury and judges are well respected people in the film and sporting industry. We'll be adding more so check our website periodically to see the updates.

This is the inaugural year of the festival and we hope to continue to grow.
