'Million eyes International Short Film Festival' signifies the objective of reaching the message of eye donation to one million people through this film festival. Eye donation being a global requirement, we invite participation from people across the world.
Eye donation - An agent of social change.
We look for creative ideas that can motivate and inspire people to donate their eyes.
MILLION EYES is part of the efforts by Project Vision to spread the eye donation movement across the globe. Project Vision is the response to the situation of 39 million people across the globe being blind. India is home to the world’s largest number of blind people with 15 million persons. (WHO 2010).
Its a global problem that affects about 40 million people across the world, with countries like India bearing the brunt of it with 15 million of them. Though 20% of them could get sight through a corneal transplant, eye donation has not become part of our culture. Most visually challenged people die waiting for an eye, without ever seeing themselves or the world. We have collaborated with Darsana cultural centre to conduct this film festival
