The 48th International Film Festival of India is one of the most sought-after film festivals in the country. It is surrounded currently by controversy as the Information and Broadcasting Ministry dropped two films S Durga and Nude from the final list of feature films to be screened at the festival. But, there’s more to the festival.
Noted Argentinian filmmaker Pablo Cesar’s Thinking of Him is going to have its world premiere here, and the film has been selected to close the 48th International Film Festival of India.
The Indo-Argentian production is based on the bond shared by Rabindranath Tagore with Argentine feminist writer and cultural activist Victoria Ocampo. The film stars Victor Banerjee, Eleonora Wexler, Hector Bordoni and Raima Sen.
Filmmaker Pablo Cesar will present the world premiere of the film along with the star cast on the closing day of the Festival on November 28, 2017.
Speaking about this, filmmaker Pablo Cesar said, “My heart was conquered by IFFI in 1994 when I was invited to screen my third long feature film. Now I am here with my eleventh film, happy and anxious. IFFI invites us to get excited about the world premiere of this film.”
IFFI’s theme this year is ‘Celebrating the Future of Cinema’ – bringing youngsters and the best minds of the cinematic world together.
The 48th International Film Festival of India will be held in Goa from November 20 -28, 2017.
