Gleneagles Global Hospitals’ ‘MISCALCULATION’ Wins Jury Choice Award at GIIFFA 2017

 : Gleneagles Global Hospitals won Jury Choice Award at GIIFFA (Global Impact International Film Festival & Awards) 2017 for ‘MISCALCULATION’, a soul-stirring and though-provoking short film on oral cancer awareness. There were 1500 entries including international films for the GIIFFA 2017 out of which 30 films were selected for the final screening.

‘MISCALCULATION’, a Shuttersteam Media production, written and directed by Prasad Kadam was made with an intention of diffusing a strong social message and highlighting the detrimental effects of tobacco consumption, which invariably deteriorates the health of the user along with the future and aspirations of his/her loved ones. The film showcases how a brilliant child had to give up studies leaving his dreams behind, and sell tea to manage the cost of his father’s treatment, who is struggling with oral cancer as a result of his tobacco addiction. The core theme and most touching part of the short film comes to the fore through an insightful dialogue wherein the boy mentions that, though his father adores him a lot, his love and addiction for tobacco dominates everything else in his life. Through this short film Gleneagles Global Hospitals tried to strike an emotional connect with the viewers and reinforce the message, Give-up Tobacco, Embrace Life.

Expressing his pride and exhilaration on this achievement, Ramesh Krishnan, CEO India Operations Division, Parkway Pantai said, ‘‘It is very gratifying to witness our short film ‘MISCALCULATION’ winning the prestigious GIFFA Jury Choice Award. The response has been overwhelming as our initiative against the use of tobacco has achieved an unprecedented reach in society. It is always very fulfilling as a healthcare provider to run such initiatives in the larger interest of society. We aim to continue towards creating awareness on many such critical issues to help the people of our nation lead a healthy life.”
