FILM SUBMISSIONS CLOSED FOR 2017 EDITION

ALL LIGHTS INDIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL TO SCREEN 115+ MOVIES FROM 50 COUNTRIES

All Lights India International Film Festival (ALIIFF) has announced the list of movies to be screened as part of Indywood Film Carnival, one of the largest film based events in the country, which will be held at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad from Dec 1-4.

After the grand success of the first two editions, ALIIFF is being considered as the one of Asia’s best film festivals. The third edition of ALIIFF has received over 1000 film submissions from over 80 countries. Among this, 115 plus films have been shortlisted for screening in six competition and 8 plus non-competition categories respectively.

“We have selected some of the best works in contemporary cinema which include films that have won international recognition for ALIIFF 2017. It is a matter of great pride that we are showcasing movies from more than 50 countries. It underlines the reputation and credibility of ALIIFF. We believe that this will play a pivotal role in promoting Film Tourism in India apart from strengthening cultural relations and knowledge exchange,” said Indywood Founder Director Sohan Roy.

Sohan Roy, Director of Hollywood movie Dam999, spearheads 10 billion US dollar Project Indywood which aims elevating Indian Film Industry to global standards in the next five years through a consortium of 2000 Indian billionaires and corporates. He was listed in Top Powerful and Influential Leaders in Middle East 2017 released by Forbes Middle East.

The Rs 70,000 crore Project Indywood aims at initiating 10,000 new 4K projection multiplex screens, 100,000 2K/4K projection home cinemas, 8K/4Kfilm studios, 100 animation/VFX studios and film schools conforming to international standards.

Renowned filmmaker and Padma Bhushan recipient Shyam Benegal is chairing the event as the Festival Director. “ALIIFF 2017 brings together the best of Indian Cinema to showcase to the world. It is an excellent platform for all film professionals and cineastes of the country to come together,” said  Shyam Benegal

Nisha Joseph, Artistic Director, ALIIFF said, “The selection criteria and process were competitive. We were forced to leave out many brilliant movies. ALIIFF 2017 will also showcase a retrospective of Shyam Benegal, a legend in Indian Film Industry. Another highlight will be the trilogy of 11 Palanca Award Winner Filipino Director Jun Robles Lana. ALIIFF will also have a special section dedicated to animation and environmental movies this year. We are offering our delegates a complete package of International cinema.”
