Mumbai's International Film Festival will open on Nov 20 with He Ping's Warriors Of Heaven And Earth, the Chinese language film co-produced by Columbia Pictures Film Production Asia.

In all, 80 films from 28 countries including Shekhar Kapur's Four Feathers will be screened during the seven-day international event.

A highlight this year is the competition for Indian films judged by an international jury.

Thirteen Indian films, both in national and regional languages, are competing in this section.

The festival will also confer its Lifetime Achievement Award to renowned Indian filmmaker and former head of Indian Censor Board Vijay Anand and Outstanding Contribution to Film Music Award to Naushad Ali.

The Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI) has organised the sixth edition of the festival in collaboration with YB Chavan Pratishthan and Imax Adlabs and the government of Maharashtra.
