Films selected, films rejected...

Vikalp list [1] is currently, as of December 26, 2005, discussing the films selected and those rejected by the MIFF, or Mumbai International Films Festival. This time's festival will be from Feb 3-9, 2006 at Mumbai.

One note from Vikalp comments: "Anjali and JayS, Shocking to hear about the exclusion of your film, especially coming on top of the Best film award at the 3 Continents filmfest... I remain as convinced as ever that we must have Vikalp screenings during MIFF 2006!"

An official quote: "Films Division, Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Govt. of India has been biennially organizing Mumbai International Film Festival (MIFF) for Documentary, Short and Animation Films, successfully since 1990." More on the festival here [5]
