BIG Pictures, the motion pictures brand of Reliance Big Entertainment's Kannada film IJJODU has been selected for the Ahmedabad International Film Festival to be held in Ahmedabad from 25th June to 28 June, 2009.

IJJODU is the official selection for the Feature Films Competitive category. IJJODU will be screened on 27th June at this festival, where the film would have its world premiere.

IJJODU stars Meera Jasmine, Anirudh, Srivatsa, Nagkiran and Arundhati Jathakara. It is directed by M S Sathyu. The film is a story of a young photo journalist's brief encounter with a girl who was made a 'Basavi' at the altar of the village deity, to save people who were hit by a devastating epidemic. 'Basavi' is a cult very similar to that of the 'Devdasi'. Director M. S. Sathyu and actress Meera Jasmine will be present for the film's screening at the festival.

Commenting on the official selection for the competition, director M. S. Sathyu says, ''I am happy that Ahmedabad International Film Festival has selected IJJODU in the competition section. IJJODU has positive theme and will be of interest to Indian as well as international audience. The film juxtaposes the old and new, past and present, ritualistic and contemporary.''
