Spotlight on Indian Films
2020 is different: online cinema with box office, shop and cinema hall
The Indian film festival in Stuttgart will be available online from July 15th to 19th this year: The 17th Indian Film Festival in Stittgart will portray a society that has to endure extreme differences with an entertaining, engaging online program.
The spectrum ranges from cheeky holy city monkeys, power thieves, the dilemma of an unemployed literary alumnus, the current discrimination and exclusion of Muslims, Dalits, Christians and tribesmen throughout India to a confrontation with the world of the Hijras, India's third gender. “Fridays for Future” climate activists from Delhi, Mumbai and Stuttgart are also part of the promising program.
The film festival, which has been relocated to the Internet, brings a reunion with audience favorite Geetanjali Thappa, which delighted the Stuttgart audience with Onir's romantic comedy "Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz" in 2018. The camera woman Pooja Gupte, who was a speaker of the master class "Making of Indian Cinema" at the festival in 2019, recorded the short film "Wig" by her husband Atanu Mukherjee.
Info: For the first time, the homepage becomes a worldwide online cinema with a foyer, in which an inexpensive festival pass (all inclusive) and in a shop, for example Indian puppets or festival bags, can be bought at www.indisches-filmfestival.de
