Sidharth Srinivasan’s Pairon Talle will be screened in The Bright Future program at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2011. The 40th edition of the festival will take place from Jan 26-Feb 6, 2011.
Bright Future is the section in which the festival presents debut or second feature films, which it finds ‘important, idiosyncratic and adventurous’.
The section this year will screen eighteen world premières, ten international premières and eleven European premières. In total, this year’s Bright Future is made up of eighty films selected from thirty-eight countries. Fifteen of these films, including Pairon Talle, received support from IFFR’s Hubert Bals Fund.

FORTUNE TELLER, Xu Tong, China
THE OLD DONKEY, Li Ruijun, China (Hubert Bals Fund supported film)
TAPE, Li Ning, China
PIANO IN A FACTORY, Zhang Meng, China
