MUMBAI: Rajan Khosa’s Gattu has become the second film chosen to be screened at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) in the Generation Kplus segment. Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Don 2 will also feature in the festival.
Produced by the Children Film Society of India (CFSI), Gattu has been acclaimed at other fests too.
The Shah Rukh Khan film will screen for two reasons: the film, being financed by the German government, would attract viewers there; besides, in the process, it would have its German premiere.
A total of 58 short and full-length films from 32 countries have been selected for the Generation Kplus and Generation 14-plus competitions. Two of these films will be screening out of competition.
Members of the International jury are- Scottish documentary filmmaker, Mark Cousins, author and festival programmer, Rasmus Horskj?r from Denmark, film commissioner for children and youth at the Danish Film Institute Frieder Schlaich, German filmmaker cum producer and distributor Marité Ugas from Peru, director of the film El Chico Que Miente, Maxine Williamson from Australia, and artistic director of the Asian Pacific Screen Academy.
The festival will be held from 9-19 February.
