Tanuj Chopra’s Films – Package Deal for a Good Cause

In Uncategorized on May 4, 2011 at 8:01 PM

Last year, I wrote a little comic titled S.O.S. for the graphic novel SECRET IDENTITIES. Today. the creators of the book are working hard to host an online auction featuring things made by SI’s contributors. All proceeds are going directly to disaster relief.

They’ve made a little package deal available for Clap Clap, PIA and Butterfly -This is a good time to cop these films together if you dig the work.

Gabhricha Paus (The Damned Rain) selected in Cannes Cinnephilles, Festival De Cannes 2011

In Red Hot Carpets on May 4, 2011 at 7:42 PM

Gabhricha Paus is selected as a part of Cannes Cinephiles, Screens Junior section, in which 8-10 movies are selected in competition for a young audience, because they develop themes or depict worlds that may constitute for these young people some thought. The jury, composed of a class ‘cinema’ College Gerard Philipe de Cannes, will determine the outcome of the event, a work they wish to study in class. There will be 2 or 3 public screenings of Gabhricha Paus in this section. Other movies in this section are from all over the world including movies from France, Italy, Israel to name a few. Gabhricha Paus will be presented with French subtitles.

Other than the documentary about Indian films by Shekhar Kapur, I believe this is the only Indian film with a presence in Cannes this year.

Cannes Cinéphiles (Cannes film Enthusiasts) is an event organised by Cannes Cinéma and the Festival de Cannes to provide public screenings from the Official Selection, as well as films from the parallel sections.
