In recent years the Mumbai Film Festival has been wet dreams for any movie lover. The game was simple - they picked all the winners and nominees of all film festivals in the world. The list this year is not yet revealed but some titles have been confirmed. And through these titles, it seems like they're on track this year too.
Among the biggest are Rust and Bone by Jacques Audiard (was in competition at Cannes), Walter Salles' On The Road and Snow White (Snow White) by Paul Bergera, a reinvention of the classic Brothers Grimm.
Nandini Ramnath in Mint Lounge has confirmed reports some titles. This includes Amour Michael Haneke, David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis , Ken Loach Share The Angels' Danish films A Royal Affair and The Kauwboy Hunt, and this is the favorite of this year's festival Zeitlin benh Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Festival Dates : 18-25 October, 2012.
Venue : NCPA and INOX. Can anyone confirm if Cinemax Versova will also have screenings or not?
Shifting the venue to South Bombay is a strange decision when the film industry and related people seems to be mostly from suburbs. If you had been to Cinemax Versova for last year’s fest, you know the kind of crowd it attracted. And at the same time screenings at Metro and Cinemax Sion were going almost empty. I might be biased because Andheri (west) suits me best and travelling in Bombay is quite exhausting. So putting up a poll here.
ENJOY.. Miko XD
GOD bless you
