I created a new Genre of Short Film - CINEKU in 2006 which was Premiered at the Trivandram International Film Festival 2006. It was also shown in the International Film Festival of Kerala, Suchitra International Film Festival, Bangalore and was selected in the competition of Short Shorts Film Festival Tokyo, Japan. More details about CINEKU can be found HERE.

What is CINEKU ?


Cineku is the Haiku Version of Cinema.

Like Japanese Haiku poems Cineku ( Pronounced Cine – Koo ) is a unique new form of Cinema consisting of a very short film of 3 shots each, conveying a central idea in the briefest possible use of shots.


1. The film should consist of only Three shots

2. Shot length shouldn’t be more than 40 Seconds and the Maximum length of the film should be
One Minute

3. There should not be any Optical or Computer-graphic modification of images. In Camera effects are allowed.

Here is one CINEKU - FIRE

More CINEKU Films are available online for viewing in YouTube :
