International Film Festival Rotterdam added two more Indian films in its Bright Future section: Carnival directed by Madhuja Mukherjee and Valley of Saints directed by Musa Syeed.

Bright Future is a section to discover fresh new filmmakers.

Carnival is a film shot in overcrowded Kolkata during a Hindu festival which merges documentary and fiction, evoking notions of joy and sadness.

Valley of Saints (India-USA) is a love story set in Kashmir which will also compete in the World Dramatics category of Sundance Film Festival 2012.

Dance of Ganesha, a short film by Bikas Ranjan Mishra will also play at the festival.

It was earlier announced that Anhey Ghore Da Daan by Gurvindar Singh will be a part of Bright Future section.

The festival will be held from January 25-February 5, 2012.
