Marathi movie channel Zee Talkies today said it will start telecasting short films from January 10.
The show 'Talkies Lighthouse' will have a series of short films in an entertaining format of 90 minutes, Zee Talkies said in a statement.
"The output of Marathi films has accelerated in the last 2-3 years. We believe that there is a lot of talent which is unexposed due to lack of opportunities. There are aspiring film makers who have limited access to the audiences even though with a good product in hand," Zee Talkies Business Head Bavesh Janavlekar said.
"Until now, we were only focusing on films and film-related events, and this is the first time we are exploring an innovative approach to launch short films in a show wrapped around entertainment," he added.
The short films will be showcased by actors Lalit Prabhakar and Neha Mahajan.
