V.H. Belvadi’s Short films

I enjoy directing films and have been lucky enough to work with some talented, helpful and friendly people who humoured me – and, of course, who shared my enthusiasm for the art. I have worked on five short films so far, the first of which is forgettable. Below are the other four.

Not all of these are available to watch online although their trailers are (see links below). Some of these have been showcased in film festivals while others are making the festival circuit, for example, being in consideration at the Big Apple Film Festival, New York, and the Boulder International Film Festival, Colorado. Some of us appeared on local television too – for origami – and it was quite fun.


Film two in my Outdoors trilogy exploring human nature set in an unrealistically isolated world. This one is about desperation. On the surface this is about a bike theft, but the story inside is an exploration of the lines humans are prepared to cross to save themselves. Watch the trailer.


Film one in my Outdoors trilogy exploring human nature set in an unrealistically isolated world. This one is about the deep, unintentional connections we share. A jogger and a man dying of cancer start to affect each other’s lives greatly only through a single piece of paper. Watch the trailer.

Also watch some of the cast and crew on a live television interview with a local channel. The interview is about 30 min long.


When a photographer discovers a long lost picture made by his favourite photographer, he sets out on a maddening journey to recreate the masterpiece. He fails miserably but learns an invaluable lesson about art on the way. Watch the trailer.


Developing on the events following Edgar Allen Poe’s short story The telltale heart, this film explores how the guilt of committing murder weighs on a criminal who ultimately sees solace only in death. Watch the trailer.


There might be another one coming soon.
