Best Shorts Competition(www.BestShorts.net)

Best Shorts is an internationally prestigious competition honoring filmmakers from Oscar Winners to hot new talent!  Our judges base their decisions on the quality, creativity, and technical aspects of each piece.  

 

Overview:

Join a mahavat(tiger tracker) and his son on their trusted  elephant as they venture into a wild paradise for an intimate look at a Bengal tigress and her two cubs. Filmed in India’s Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, this story traces the lives of a wild tigress named Bachhi and her two young cubs, Badi and Choti.  As they grow, the cubs will face a variety of threats- from cobras and pythons, to sloth bears and leopards, and even other tigers. In the surrounding forest, another drama unfolds: Charger, an old dominant male tiger, is being challenged by his own son Banda.

As viewers of this extraordinary film witness dramatic stories play out, they’ll also learn how to track tigers. They’ll witness the rivalry between male tigers for territorial dominance. And they’ll watch as Bachhi’s cubs grow up, exhibiting very different personalities and using unique calls to communicate with their mother.
