River to River Florence Indian Film Festival

5 - 10 December, Cinema La Compagnia and other places around Florence

The River to River Florence Indian Film Festival is the first festival outside India dedicated to Indian cinema. Returning for its 19th edition in December 2019, the Bagri Foundation was delighted to support the festival for the second year as a sponsor. The name of the festival describes the flowing of cultures through cinema from the Ganges to the Arno river. Opening the festival is Shonali Bose’s The Sky is Pink, a bittersweet film inspired by a true story – about a couple, Aditi and Niren, and their 25-year-long love story from the point of view of their teenage girl, Aisha.
