Beyond a #100FilmyDays

Thank You!

It’s truly been a while since I shared a post or a film review here! Okay, I admit I suck at time management. But at least 1 post a week hereon is a promise. No, not ‘cuz I want to make it a compulsion but there are so many drafts that I wish to complete and share with you guys.

The last happening thing that we discussed here was the #100FilmyDays. And then I put no conclusive post for the challenge. Honestly, it wasn’t procrastination! This edition of #100FilmyDays Challenge was beyond surprising.

THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT

I had always aimed at encouraging people to get beyond their excuses and time limits to keep up to the habit of watching movies. A result of which was the #100FilmyDays Challenge. When I first started with it, I managed to get about 8-10 odd people following the trend.

But this year was different, special! You know why? Because over time, over 40 people promised to participate. Guess what?

At least 10 managed to be fairly consistent!

Special mention to Zoheb, Navneet, Shivam for keeping this initiative alive.

At the end of 100 days, Zoheb had managed to watch about 117 films. YES.

Shivam reached 90 and still continues to watch films and update us with the #100FilmyDays initiative. Zoheb said he would want to do a second season of it again this year. I’m so proud, amazed and really can’t thank you enough for this!

Papiha, Jieyaa, Jasraj, Priyum, Rohan thank you for exploring some really gems!

Jieyaa, I loved your analysis of each film that you watched. (Many of them being classics, many unheard) Thank you!

The film watching activity became a habit with regular social updates, each encouraging viewing more and better films.

I called me Cinemawaali because I love cinema. But with this dition of this special initiative I felt proud of having been able to motivate more and more people to watch films on a regular basis. I myself managed 92 films in 100 days.

AND I AM SO HAPPY AND PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT OVER 1000 FILMS WERE WATCHED IN 100 DAYS BY THE PARTICIPANTS IN OVER 10 LANGUAGES!

Many took on the habit, many connected for the love of cinema.We watched more and more films, passed on recommendations and dissected the making and discussed our views.

These are small things that bring joy to the little efforts we take to give back to the society and the community we so love!

Let’s keep this going 🙂

You can take up the challenge anytime. Details here!

Don’t forget to share your updates across social media platforms and tag me (@cinemawaali). Let’s inspire and get inspired; let’s discuss and share our love for cinema!

LONG LIVE CINEMA!
