"I'm so proud of all my friends, all the directors who have come together and made these films. These are new voices, new directors and I really feel that in the coming years, they all are going to leave a very important mark in the kind of films that we make," Huma said.
The five short films are titled 'Sujata', 'Epilogue', 'Audacity', 'Mehfuz' and 'Shor'.
