48th IFFI's Indian Panorama Section inaugurated by Sridevi

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

Like every year, IFFI's Indian Panorama Section is a major attraction for cinephiles, along with the International Competition, of course. This year the Panorama Section has been in news more than ever owing to the controversy surrounding the resignation of jury chief Sujoy Ghosh. Despite the omission of S Durga and Nude, the section nonetheless has a very strong lineup of films. The section was officially inaugurated by actress Sridevi earlier today.

Some of the films to watch out for are Vinod Kapri's Hindi film Pihu, Prasad Oak's Marathi film Kachcha Limbu, Miransha Naik's Konkani film Juze, Rima Das' Assamese film Village Rockstars, and Amartya Bhattacharya's Oriya film Khyanikaa, among others.

Perhaps one film that stands apart is Nila Madhab Panda's Kadvi Hawa. Panda, who shot to fame by making the celebrated children's film I Am Kalam, this time has chosen the all important subject of climate change. A powerful drama that captures the very real threat of climate change, Kadvi Hawa stars Ranvir Shorey, Sanjay Mishra, Tillotama Shome and Bhupesh Singh. 

The film is slated for a Pan India release on 24th November 2017. Eros International and Drishyam Films have collaborated to present and distribute Kadvi Hawa.

The National Award-winning film was recently screened recently for Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan who was very impressed with the film. 

Film's pressing subject and the fact that it has already won a National Award make it one of the most important films in the Indian Panorama Section.
