From 6 to 12 december 2014, Florence is
going to host the 14th edition of River to River Florence Indian Film Festival.
Under the Patronage of the Embassy of India, this is the first festival in
the world fully dedicated to films from and about India.
River to River Florence Indian Film Festival had its first edition in October
2001 at the Rondò di Bacco Theatre of Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy.
The aim of River
to River is to promote only films from and about India and it is the first
Festival of this kind in the world. During the first year of the Festival, also
Indian cinema was seeing a new life: Ashutosh Gowariker's Lagaan won the
Audience Award in Locarno and Monsoon Wedding by Mira Nair wins the Golden Lion
in Venice. And in 2002 Sanjay
Leela Bhansali's Devdas was screened in Cannes.
The Festival is part of the Cinquanta
Giorni di Cinema Internazionale a Firenze and will be held in Cinema Odeon.
