A gripping true story of humanity and heroism, HOTEL MUMBAI vividly recounts the 2008 siege of the famed Taj Hotel by a group of terrorists in Mumbai, India. Among the dedicated hotel staff is the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Academy Award-Nominee Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire) who choose to risk their lives to protect their guests. As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer, Call Me By Your Name and Nazanin Boniadi, "Homeland") is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.

Director Anthony Maras has said of this film: "I am forever grateful for the unwavering support the Adelaide Film Festival has offered our project since day one. The SAFC [South Australian Film Corporation] and ADL [Adelaide] Film Fest [AFF]'s backing of 'Hotel Mumbai' enabled my home town of Adelaide to play a crucial role in the making of this truly international production, and allowed us to work again with so many amazing South Australian cast and crew. It could not be more fitting to premiere the film at AFF, and so soon after the World Premiere at the Toronto international Film Festival." See more
