ANUSHKA MANCHANDA at MUMBAI FILM FESTIVAL


The Mumbai Film Festival (MFF) registered more than 3,500 delegates last week during its 11th edition. This number has increased by a considerable 70% compared to the delegate registration last year. With the best 200 films from all over the world screening at this year's MFF, the response was overwhelming from delegates, guests and press alike.

Invited guests also increased this year with the festival hosting close to 100 visitors - 50 international guests (international film directors, actors, buyers, international film festival directors etc) and 40 Indian guests (Indian film directors, actors, buyers etc) enjoyed the festival , which is three times the number of visitors the festival hosted last year.

Srinivasan Narayanan, Director, Mumbai Film Festival says, "The robust movie line-up, ardent support from all our trustees and the cinema lovers of Mumbai have made this festival a huge success. We are extremely pleased with the overwhelming response that the 11th Mumbai Film Festival has garnered. We have successfully raised the bar and set a benchmark"

The Film Business Centre in its very first year of inception saw an overwhelming response as it facilitated business opportunities between interested parties.

Visiting directors discussed production and co-production possibilities with Indian counterparts.
