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

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.

Congrats to the entire team!

  1. Nice blog…thanks for sharing!

  2. It is an honor for Indian Cinema. I dont know why The Indian Media never highlighted it. I think they are more Interested in Super star war & Break up – Patch up things.
