However, what might disappoint filmmakers is that the slot allotted to these films is 11 pm on Sunday and Monday.
Tripurari Sharan, Director General, Doordarshan said that the plan is flexible and might be increased to four films a week if “the Indian audience have that kind of appetite.”
The first film to be shown as part of this segment is Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s Nizhalkkuthu (Shadow Kill). The film was selected for Venice International Film Festival in 2002 and won the National Film Award for Best Film in Malayalam language.
