OMG, this is a really superb set of movies. Hopefully people attend with enthusiasm. BTW, why is Harischandra Factory and Superman of Malegaon included in a docu festival any idea? They are fiction right?

Docu filmmaking is vastly unexplored in India. With DV, this should have gained popularity, but nowhere to be seen...

JAFB, Well i'm quite clueless myself regarding many inclusion. We are not involved in the programming or curating aspect so cannot say.

We're excited(Cinedarbaar) if we can channelize some creative funds for documentary through this festival. Let's hope things materialize.
