South Indian Film Festival to be conducted at British university!

 Six Tamil films are to receive a wider range of audience as they will be screened at South Indian Film Festival in an arts university in  UK 

Six Tamil films – Sutta Kadhai, Vidiyum Munna, Neethaane En Ponvasantham, Mudhal Mudhal Mudhal Varai, Neram and Neer Paravai – will be screened June 6-8 as part of South Indian Film Festival at The Arts University Bournemouth in Britain.

The university’s third year film student Shashi Wilson-Joshi, who with the help of sub-titlist Rekhs, known for subtitling over 200 Indian films into English, is single handedly curating this festival.

“This unique festival shares Rekhs dream of bringing Indian cinema to a new audience. The cinema of South Asia has been painfully underrepresented in the West for too long, and the cliches and stereotypes associated with mainstream Bollywood are in need of being,” Shashi told IANS.

“The vibrant selection has something for everyone, be it quirky black comedies, romantic musicals or hard-hitting realism, but they all have one thing in common; exhibiting an exciting new-wave of intelligent and meaningful cinema from India’s southern states,” he added.

All the screenings will be followed by a question and answer session with the films’ cast and crew via Skype.

“We aim to start an important conversation with audiences and filmmaker alike surrounding the lack of recognition for Indian films worldwide; is it poor distribution and subtitling which keeps these films from the western mainstream, or simply a cultural clash,” said Shashi.
