India's Oscar-nominated venture Little Terrorist , a first-time package from Iran and a panorama of films from the northeast would be the main draw of this year's Mumbai International Film Festival (MIFF) featuring 500-odd entries from over 40 countries.
The 9th edition of MIFF scheduled between February 3 and 9 in Mumbai would have maiden documentary entries from Iran made mostly by the country's young woman filmmakers, MIFF Director Raghu Krishna, told reporters.
“We will have a package of Iranian films spanning nine hours at the festival this time alongside India's Oscar-nominated entry 'Little Terrorist' by Ashwin Kumar,” Krishna said.
The northeastern states would be amply represented with 11 films – ‘Drummers of Koihati’, ‘Where the Tallest Grass Grows’, ‘Prayers for New Gods’, ‘And Silently the Drums Wait’, ‘The Dance of the Lai Haraoba’, ‘Binding Threads’, ‘Sons of Abotani: The Misings’, ‘And the Bamboo Blooms’, ‘Mizoram - The Haven of Peace’, ‘Tripura and Wet Dessert’.
