A n increasing number of Indian filmmakers are turning towards film festivals of late. Film festivals across the globe not only provide exposure to their films but also offer opportunities to help the film get theatrical release. But is it true for all films that have been festival hits? There are films that travel to festivals all around the world, compete and win but they don’t manage to find a footing in theaters.
The 15th edition of the Mumbai Film Festival hosted a panel discussion on whether film festivals help films achieve success. On the panel were French co-producer of The Lunchbox Marc Baschet (Asap Films), Filmmakers Umesh Kulkarni (Valu, Vihir, Deool) and Anand Gandhi (Ship of Theseus); and Peter Van Hoof, programmer of the International Film Festival of Rotterdam. The panel was moderated by Liz Shackleton, Asia chief, Screen International.
