International Film Festival.

ViBGYOR is a non-competitive film festival, with the exception of `cash prizes' awarded in the `Kerala Spectrum: Short Fiction' category. Every year ViBGYOR extends its support to young filmmakers via THREE Film Fellowships, in order to pursue their next film projects. We award an amount of INR 25,000/- as `C. Saratchandran Film Fellowship', to a young filmmaker whose work is entered and screened at ViBGYOR-2013 under `National' (Indian) category. ViBGYOR awards two other film fellowships of Rs.10,000/- to young filmmakers, whose documentaries are screened in the 'Kerala Spectrum'/National categories; this is in view of their upcoming documentary film project. A cash award (INR 25,000) will be given to the Best Short Fiction in the 'Kerala Spectrum' category.
