International film festival begins in Bangalore on November 8
The Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy, in co-operation with the Federation of Film Societies in India, is organising an international film festival from November 8 to 20, 2010.
“The films will be screened in a digital format. “We need not hire regular cinema theatres,” academy chairman TS Nagabharana said at a press conference.
“LCD projectors will be used to screen the films. We are exploring newer avenues to help serious filmmakers find an alternative to reach non-metro cities.”
“Entries had come for 110 films from 20 countries. We will be screening 82 films. Eight Kannada and 20 other Indian language films will be screened. The rest will be from across the world,” he said.
