Noted Indian filmmaker Aparna Sen will be the 'Guest of Honour' at the third International Women's Film Festival (IWFF) in Israel scheduled to start Thursday in the city of Rehovot, near Tel Aviv.

Sen, whose classic 'Mr. and Mrs. Iyer' has been screened at several film festivals in Israel, is the star attraction at the fest where three of her films will be shown.



The Indian filmmaker’s debut film '36 Chowringhee Lane' will feature alongwith 'Mr. and Mrs. Iyer' and her latest offering in English, 15 Park Avenue .

Sen will also be answering to the queries of film enthusiasts after each of the three screenings, the organisers said.

"Women filmmakers have made a distinct mark in India and I am particularly happy, in this context, to note that the IWFF is holding a focus on the Indian film director, Aparna Sen, who is one of India's celebrated directors and actresses," India's Ambassador to Israel Arun Kumar Singh said in his message to the festival.

"The Israeli audiences have always shown great interest in Indian cinema, art and culture. I look at such interest as part of the continuing engagement between India and Israel", he said on Tuesday.

Some 46 films and documentaries will be screened at the festival from all around the world dealing with various issues related to women.
