Gangs of WasseypurAnurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur will be screened at the annual Glasgow Film Festival in Scotland to be held from February 14-24, 2013.

The festival website writes about Gangs of Wasseypur: “Acclaimed as India’s The Godfather, Gangs of Wasseypur was one of the discoveries of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Director Anurag Kashyap blends the ferocious energy of South Indian action movies with the sweep, scope and richness of a gangster epic by Sergio Leone or Martin Scorsese.”

Both parts of the film will be screened on February 23 and 24.

Vanishing Point, a short film by Abhijit Mazumdar will compete in Adrift: International Competition section of the Glasgow Short Film Festival. The film tells the story of a location scouting trip that falls into disarray.
