After the magnificent Day 1, Day 2 of Navi Mumbai International Film Festival witnessed the harmony of passion and cinema. Exciting films from across the world were screened at DY Patil Auditorium in Nerul, one of the largest auditoriums in the city.
Beginning at 9am , the impressive lineup of films included “[tha-ki-ta-tha] – Talking Drums” a documentary film directed by Philipp Holl, “Prism” by an Indian director Sandip Pandurang Mane, the movie is about a child who enjoys and learns things in nature rather than school which is an obstruction for him. The festival also showcased few short films and feature films like “Maliwood Talks” by Sudhir Kasabe, “Tara” a feature film directed by Kumar Raj amongst others.
Day 2 of NMIFF also saw a master-class by Oscar award winning producer, Mr. Marc Baschet, on “How to market and distribute independent films globally.” He spoke about the importance of a good script, the right way to pitch, different ways of promoting the film, importance of showcasing films at film festivals and shared other key insights on distributing independent films on the global market. This master class was presented by Fortune Select Exotica Navi Mumbai by ITC Hotels which is also hosting Marc’s stay in Navi Mumbai.
Tomorrow promises to be particularly engaging with more movie screening followed by the award ceremony.
