Florence Indian Film Festival 2014
Indian star Irrfan Khan will be the special guest of the 14th River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, the only festival in Italy totally devoted to Indian cinema, who will be celebrated with the first European tribute to his films. Taking place at Cinema Odeon in Florence (Piazza Strozzi 2) from December 6 to 12, the River to River Festival will showcase over 40 films and 2 special events, telling stories about the different ways of experiencing love, about sport as a mean of personal redemption, and passing through the world of art and music, with Italian, European and world previews. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet actors and filmmakers, lots of matinee workshops and side events, such as the River to River – OFF, a selection of videos by some of the best-known contemporary Indian artists, in collaboration with Museo Marino Marini and Galleria Continua-San Gimignano/Beijing/Les Moulins.
The River to River Festival keeps probing into the territories of Indian cinema to tell the many faces of a distant and extremely contradictory society through the films of established directors and young talents alike. New this year: the Online Stories section, contemporary Indian society told through the Internet and its social platforms by a new generation of filmmakers. The audience will choose the best film in each category (feature films, short films and documentaries) for the River to River Doombo Audience Award.
