The magnificent festival of new indie South-Asian film returns for its third edition in a bigger, slicker and all encompassing edition, screening a raft of eclectic and imaginative films across the city for ten days. In addition to cutting edge cinema there are several director Q&A’s and rare opportunities to join esteemed filmmakers in conversation. Absolute highlight for us is the chance to hear the great Ashutosh Gowariker discussing his seminal body of work at Cineworld. Look out for Q&A’s at the mac with Amit Masurkar following the screening of his darkly comic Newton and N Padmakumar following the screening of his compelling drama A Billion Colour Story. Indian mockumentary anyone? Gulshan Grover engages in merciless self parody in the hilarious Badman and is on hand after the screening for a Q&A at Cineworld. Karachi gangster romance, Marathi horror, funky film noir (in Sexy Durga pictured), it’s Indian Film, but not as you know it.
