Chennai International Film Festival 2012

I did this last year and I believe it was helpful to many.

I have arranged the first 40 films based on how much noise they have made on the festival circuit. I may not find time to cover the remaining films. But do experiment with your film selections; that's where the fun lies.

Let me know in the comments below if you think a film needs to be pushed up.
