Celluloid Man and Filmistan are among the roster at the 11th annual Indian Film Festival Of Los Angeles, which this year celebrates the 100th anniversary of Indian film.
As previously announced, Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs Of Wasseypur [pictured] and Deepa Mehta’s Midnight’s Children bookend the festival, which is scheduled to run from Apr 9-14.
Highlights will include a special screening of Mira Nair’s political thriller The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Ashim Ahluwalia’s 2012 Cannes Un Certain Regard entry Miss Lovely, Vasan Bala’s crime thriller debut Peddlers, Kim Longinotto’s documentary Salma and Hansal Mehta’s human rights tale Shahid.
“Our slate of films this year showcases path-breaking works of emerging and established Indian film-makers that are making waves at top-tier film festivals around the world,” said IFFLA founder and chair Christina Marouda.
“This is a rare opportunity for Los Angeles audiences to not only catch films that are very hard to find outside the film-festival circuit, but also to engage with these talented film-makers who are coming to Los Angeles to present their films.”
The festival’s Bollywood By Night series returns this year with three films by Yash Chopra: Kabhi Kabhie, Silsila and Chandni.
