Weekend film fiesta lights up  Bangalore University's language fair

The International Film Festival, organised by the Centre for Glo­­bal Languages, Bangalore University, to celebrate its annual language fair, attracted many movie buffs and foreign language students.

Kannada movie ‘U-Turn’ was also screened along with Korean, Spanish, German and Japanese movies at the Jnana Jyothi auditorium on the Central College campus during the festival.

Manjunath Nayaker (Master Manjunath), known by his screen name Swami for his lead role in television series ‘Malgudi Days’, inaugurated the event. Film director Pawan Kumar and actress Hitha Chandrashekar were present.

Various posters prepared by students on Indian cinema were put on display. French students designed a poster on Cannes Film Festival, and Japanese students on Anime (hand drawn or computer animation). A collage of miniature posters of 86 German movies so as to form an image of German actor Christoph Waltz by German students also attracted the visitors. Meenakshi C, a private bank employee, who had come to watch the French movie ‘Le Nouveau,’ said she loved French movies and the event provided an opportunity to watch some of the best international movies. “I am glad the event is during the weekend, so that I can stay and watch more than one film.”
Jyothi Venkatesh, coordinator, Centre for Global Languages, said the festival was held every year on a different theme.
