The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles

The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) begins today. From indianfilmfestival.org:

The IFFLA is a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting a greater appreciation of Indian cinema by showcasing films about India and the diverse perspectives of the Indian Diaspora. The festival will run from April 22-27, 2008 at ArcLight Hollywood, a state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of Los Angeles. Jury and Audience Choice Prizes will be awarded for Best Feature, Documentary and Short film.

Per the program, the following Bollywood movies are going to be part of the showcase: Bobby (1973); Dil To Pagal Hai (1997); Mrityudand (1997); Johnny Gaddar (2007); Khoya Khoya Chand (2007); and Taare Zameen Par (2007). Some of these are part of the Bollywood by Night feature, and there is even a tribute to Madhuri Dixit!

In addition to the Bollywood films, there seem to be several good films. The story lines to The Pool, The Glow of White Women, and Kissing Cousins are interesting indeed. Sadly, I shall not be able to attend the event this year. Definitely on my agenda for next year.
