A view of the world

Classic: A scene from The Bicycle Thief.

The festival is designed to promote film culture in the remote areas of the State. After Bangalore, it will make its way to places like Bidar, Shimoga, Dharwad and Mangalore.

Planned with a low budget and entirely on DVD format, the festival will showcase 28 films from all over the world in the City. The movies will largely be screened in three centres — Suchitra Film Society, Yavanika and Seva Sadan. There will be four shows in each centre and entry will be allowed only with a delegate pass that can be bought for Rs 200 at the venue itself. There will also be a special concession for students as well. The pass will give access to the films screened at only one of the centres.

The festival will screen movies like, The Bicycle Thief, an Italian film directed by Vittorio de Sica; A Butterfly In The Wind, a film made in Iran by director Abbas Rafaei, I Can't Live Without You, a film made by Taiwanese director Leon Dai.

On November 13 and 14, there will be two seminars on ‘The Challenges and Opportunities of Film Distribution and Exhibition in the Digital Age’ and ’Film Criticism Today’. The entire schedule of all the films can be availed at all venues. For details, call 22133410.
