All the films will be screened in Focus on World Cinema section that includes 105 features, 1 medium length and 110 short films.

Chittagong by Bedabrata Pain, Filmistaan by Nitin Kakkar, Monsoon Shootout by Amit Kumar and Papilio Buddha by Jayan K. Cherian are the feature films. While the first three are festival regulars, Papilio Buddha is the story of a group of displaced dalits in the Western Ghats of India. The Malayalam-language film has been refused a censor certificate from the CBFC for its content denigrating Mahatma Gandhi, visuals of extreme violence against a woman and severe use of expletives, among other reasons [as per this notice from the CBFC].

Short film Tau Seru by Rodd Rathjen (India-Australia) which premiered at Cannes Critics Week is also part of the lineup along with Shri Hanuman Chalisa (Forty Hymns of Faith) by Charuvi Agrawal.
