We are proud of our Bollywood filmmakers who are being acknowledged for their path-breaking cinemas worldwide. Filmmakers are now stepping ahead to bridge the gap between various entertainment industries via film festivals.
Latest ones are 'Piku', 'Haider' and 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' which are set to be screened at the Indian Film Festival scheduled to take place in Russia. Motto of the festival is to get the entertainment industries of the respective nations to bond and excel.
A four day fest will see Russian performers performing on Indian classical music.
RC Dalal, creative director of Indian Film Festival Worldwide said, "I think after Raj Kapoor, this is the second big thing (from India) that is happening in Russia. Russians have always loved Indian cinema and this shows the prominence that the film industry of India has gained."
"IFFW aims to make sure that Indian filmmakers reach the crossover audience which is still untouched. I thank Indian embassy for the support and making this film festival possible."
