The Short Film Centre (SFC) of the International Film Festival of India (2010) is set to showcase films by three Goan filmmakers.

Two films by women filmmakers competing in the Environment section and a film on human psyche competing in the International section are among the Goan entries in SFC.

Professor-cum-filmmaker Rajashree Bandodkar Karapurkar''s nine-minute-long short film titled ''Visit to Bondla Zoo'', is produced by Goa Forest Department. The film highlights the state''s only mini zoo tucked in Bondla wildlife sanctuary, situated 60 kms away from Panaji.

The second film in the Environment section is by Nalini Elvino De Souza. The 23-minute-long film is based on concept of water harvesting and aims to revive this ancient tradition.

The third film is Ramprasad Adpaikar''s ''Sin''. The film takes the audience through the mind and madness of a man, haunted by his past.

The Environmental Competition section will have 10 films while international competition will have 20 films from across the world.

Entertainment Society of Goa''s SFC was embroiled in a controversy after local filmmakers questioned the spending on this section.

IFFI organisers had later trimmed the expense on this section by almost half during the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with Directorate of Film Festival. .
