The 13th Mumbai International Film Festival (MAMI) announced a special section to celebrate 50 Years of Cannes Critics Week along with National Award winning debut features.

Some of the films to be screened from Cannes Critics Week include Valeria Gaii Guermanika’s Everybody Dies But Me, Ken Loach’s Kes and Jerzy Skolimowski’s Walkover.

The Indian National Film Award winning films to be screened in this section include Adoor Gopalakirshnan’s Swayamvaram, Shyam Benegal’s Ankur and Girish Kasaravalli’s Ghatasraddha.

Commenting on this initiative Srinivasan Naryanan, Festival Director, Mumbai Film Festival said, “By juxtaposing the Cannes Critics Week award winning films along with the Indian debut features which won National Film Awards, we are trying to create an analytical study of the films that have created trends abroad and in India, the narrative structure and the technical aspects which went into the making of these path breaking films.”

“We will be inviting the filmmakers. It will be a treat for cinema connoisseurs to be able to interact with these cinema legends. We are only happy to be paying this tribute to these masters,” added Narayanan.

The festival will be held from October 13 to October 20, 2011.
