Tilak High School has decided to move away from social issues and is doing a hor­ror film for this year’s Kula Film Awards.

“I was petrified when I heard the script because I am not into horror and the shooting was exhilarating for me, but I trusted my team and they respected my decisions,” di­rector Palvi Dewan said.

“The compilation of the movie was challenging at first because we had to narrow down the characters so through the script writer, Deevi­na Prasad’s, vision the team was able to finalise the characters.

“The most memorable moments during the shoot was when we had to shoot the horror scenes because instead of getting serious the team ended up in fits of laughter.”

Palvi said Team Tilak wished to portray that boundaries were set by society for a reason.

“We are excited about the awards this year because we have been nominated in a few categories as well,” he said.

“Students will meet friends made through the workshops, talk about movies and share our experiences.”

Team Tilak thanked Film Fiji for organising the Kula Film Awards because it provided students an op­portunity to showcase their talents.

Meanwhile, the Lautoka-based school participated in the first year of the Kula Film Awards in 2007 and won the best movie for “The Other Side of the River”.

The Kula Fijian Made Film Awards will be held at Damodar City, Suva on July 27.
