Bombay Talkies and Monsoon Shootout to be screened at 66th Cannes Film Festival

The two full-length films and one short film Maya will represent India at the Cannes festival this year

With each passing year it seems the Indian presence at the Cannes Film Festival keeps getting bigger and better, as more and more interesting movies are invited to be a part of the fest.

This year, three films will be travelling to the 66th Cannes Film Festival. Bombay Talkies featuring stories by four prominent filmmakers – Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee and Zoya Akhtar – will be shown in a special event organised to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema.

The other two films that will be a part of the festival are Monsoon Shootout and Maya. Monsoon Shootout, directed by Amit Kumar, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Neeraj Kabi and Geetanjali Thapa, will be screened out of competition. Maya, a short film dealing with the sensitive subject of rape and directed by Mumbai based filmmaker Amol Karnil, has been selected for the short-film competition.

The festival begins on May 15, 2013, and will open with the Amitabh Bachchan-Leonardo DiCaprio starrer The Great Gatsby, and several big movies from around the world will be showcased at the 11-day long festival.
