Umesh Kulkarni's 'Vijay' wins top prize at Bangkok fest

MUMBAI: Umesh Kulkari?s Short Film Vilay (Dissolution) won the top award in the International Competition section of the Thai Short Film and Video Festival held from 26 August to 5 September in Bangkok .

The film centres on a grandson returning home and remembering with pain and sorrow, the open-door welcome he always got from his late grandmother in their old-word home, all of which had totally changed in the new-age city.

Dissolution was one of 15 entries in the International section that had entries from countries like Israel, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil and Austria.

Kulkarni won the top prize at this festival last year too for his film The Three of Us.

It is also heard that Kulkarni?s debut feature film The Well will be screened at the World Film Festival of Bangkok in November. The festival will also screen Laxmikant Shetgaonkar‘s Man beyond the Bridge.

Thailand?s Short Film & Video Festival is 14 years old, and is proof of the popularity of this film-genre in the Land of Smiles. In fact, the jam-packed hall of the vibrant Bangkok Arts & Culture Centre is a welcome sight.
