Reema Kagti to promote filmmakers from North East

The Talaash director is inspired by young filmmakers, and wants to promote new talent

Reema Kagti, who is excited about her forthcoming release Talaash starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji, is equally gung-ho about the Bramhaputra Valley Short Films contest. It is a one-of-its-kind contest which aims to promote films and filmmakers from the country’s north east region. The jury for this unique film festival comprises Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti and Dibakar Banerjee.

Kagti is really looking forward to this unique opportunity where young filmmakers will get to showcase their ideas, inspirations and stories. “Young filmmakers inspire me in a way even veterans can’t do. Being from Assam, I wanted to do something for the region and promote films in Assam. We have so many issues which I hope will be reflected through these films. Films are a beautiful medium. You can make your voice heard by making films. I feel the north east is kind of cut off from the rest of India socially and politically. Through films I am just making an effort to bridge the gap.” said the 42-year-old writer and filmmaker.

We at BollywoodLife agree with Reema’s opinion that films hold the potential to bring people together. And we are sure you would agree too, what say?
