Mumbai Film Festival to treat movie lovers to the best of cinema

By Reji John Oct 06 2010 , Mumbai

More than 200 films from 58 countries will be screened during the weeklong Mumbai Film Festival that begins on October 21. The opening film The Social Network, a roundtable by three-time academy award-winner Oliver Stone with Indian filmmakers, an all women jury headed by academy award winner Jane Campion, and a special celebration of Japanese cinema, are the highlights of the 12th edition of the festival organised by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI).

“The aim has always been to pick the best films from around the world and we have managed to do that year after year. Even this year, the lineup of films at the festival is impressive and they are painstakingly selected keeping in mind the audience interest,” said S Narayanan, the festival director.

The Social Network will have its first screening at a film festival after its theatrical release in the US last Friday. “We chose this film because it is about something that a lot of young people use in their lives and is very contemporary. The attempt is to attract the young audience,” said Narayanan about the choice of David Fincher’s film on the creation of social networking website Facebook and its founder. According to Narayanan, the festival committee is trying to bring Fincher to Mumbai.

Route Irish by Ken Loach; Winter Vacation by Li Hongqi; Somewhere by Sofia Coppola; Company Men by John Wells, starring Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones; Banraku by Guy Moshe, starring Josh Hartnett and Demi Moore; Inside Job by Charles Ferguson, starring Matt Damon; Letters to Julliette by Gary Winick, starring Venessa Redgrave and Gael Garcia; Of Gods And Men by Xavier Beauvois; and Certified Copy by Abbas Kiarostami, are among the important films that will be screened during the festival.

For the international competition section, which honours the best film from among 14 films of first-time directors, the only Indian entry is the Kashmiri film Harud (Autumn). This film, directed by Aamir Bashir, was also the official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival this year. According to Narayanan, all these young directors will be personally present in Mumbai during the festival. The winner in this category gets a cash prize of Rs 50 lakh.

Additional awards include the Golden Gateway of India trophy for the best film, the silver Gateway of India trophy and cash prize of Rs 25 lakh for the Jury Grand Prize. The best talent from these films will be awarded the Silver Gateway of India trophy and all films in this category are being screened in India for the first time.

The audience choice award, which was introduced last year, includes Silver Gateway of India trophy and cash prize of Rs 10 lakh.

Virgin Goat (Laadli Laila) by Murali Nair, whose film Marana Simhasanam (Throne of Death) won the Camera d’Or at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival, and Tamil–language fantasy-adventure film Aayirathil Oruvan (One Man in a Thousand), are some of the Indian language films that will be screened under the Indian Frame section. All these films were made in the past one year.

“This section is meant to be a show window for the best Indian films targeting the foreign delegates, festival directors, sales agents and co-producers,” said the festival director.

In the special focus on Japanese cinema, a collection of pristine 35 mm prints of 43 films, classic and contemporary, will be screened. Aruna Vasudev, an Asian cinema expert, will also lead a seminar on Japanese cinema at the festival.

MAMI will honour Stone with the international lifetime achievement award and noted Indian film actor-director-screenwriter-producer Manoj Kumar will be honored with the Indian lifetime achievement award.

According to Narayanan, for the first time in any Indian film festival important buyers and sales agents from around the world will be attending the film festival.
