Rituparno Ghosh in Chitrangada

Rituparno Ghosh’s latest film Chitrangada will premiere at the 12th annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) which will run from May 23 to 27 at Tribeca Cinemas in Lower Manhattan.

In Chitrangada, to be screened as the Centerpiece film of the festival, director Rituparno Ghosh faces the camera again in the role of a choreographer who plans to stage the dance drama ‘Chitrangada’ on the occasion of Rabindranath Tagore’s 150th birth anniversary.

The festival will close with Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur which will have its World Premiere in Directors’ Fortnight at the 65th Cannes Film Festival.

The festival announced earlier that it will open with Bedabrata Pain’s Chittagong.

Another highlight of the festival will be the screening of Oscar-winning documentary Saving Face from Pakistan.

The festival is presented by the Indo-American Arts Council.
