The Overcome Film Festival is the international event for all storytellers, filmmakers, and artists to tell the world their stories of survival and triumph over adversity. The 2019 official program will include Features and Short films in the categories of live-action, animation, narrative, non-narrative, experimental, and audiovisual poetry with 27 Award categories. The Overcome Film Festival especially encourages and welcomes the entries of filmmakers all over the world who want to share their experiences in overcoming adversity or any other factor that has contributed to their growth as a person and motivated them to celebrate their existence. It is the focus of the film festival to give survivors a voice and a venue to share their life experiences and provide hope to others regardless of where they come from in the world.

The festival has facilitated Indian cinema by awarding films like Simran Sidhu’s ‘Rain’, Neeru Khera and Ujjwal Pandey for ‘Megha...A Song of Silence’, Nikesh Ram (Best Actor In A Feature Film) for his performance in Suveeran’s ‘In The Rain’ (Mazhayathu).
