Save the Date!
We are excited to announce that we are returning this year as supporters of the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, the first festival outside India dedicated to Indian cinema. The 19th edition of the Festival takes place from 5 – 10 December 2019 at the Cinema La Compagnia, Florence and other venues across the city.
The name of the festival describes the flowing of cultures through cinema, from the Ganges to the Arno river: River to River. The film festival aims to promote Indian films and films about India, with a full programme of feature film, documentaries and a shorts programme, special screenings, as well as side events from food to music to art. The Bagri Foundation shares the Festival’s vision to establish a dedicated space for audiences to absorb, engage with and reflect on the world of Indian cinema, offering a vital platform to expand the reach of these films to international audiences and to broaden understanding of India’s filmmaking culture.
Submissions for films are still open, make sure to submit by 15 September! You can also sign up for accreditation after 1 September. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2GaGAnX
