Aayna Ka Bayna to close ReelWorld Film Fest

MUMBAI: Samit Kakkad‘s Marathi feature Aayna Ka Bayna will be the closing film of the 13th ReelWorld Film Festival that will be held from 10 to 14 April, 2013 in Toronto.

Aayna Ka Bayna narrates the story of nine juvenile delinquents in a detention centre under a tyrant warden. They dance for passion, for hope and for their dreams to come true. The film released in India in November 2012.

Suman Ghosh‘s Shyamal Uncle Turns Off the Lights and Vikram Dasgupta‘s Calcutta Taxi will also be presented under the Free Family Screening.

Shyamal Uncle Turns Off the Lights is about an eighty year old pensioner who wants the street lights switched off during the day to save waste and fights bureaucracy. The film has traveled to the Busan International Film Festival 2012 where it was picked up by the Global Film Initiative for North American distribution. The film premiered in India at the Mumbai Film Festival 2012.

Revolving around three lives that coincide and affect each other in a way that each one gains and loses something, Calcutta Taxi, is a Canada - India co-production.

The film was put in competition in the 35th International Short Film Festival of Clermont-Ferrand and won the best short award at the 12th River to River Indian Film Festival in Florence, Italy.

Started in 2001, the ReelWorld Film Festival celebrates dramas, documentaries, shorts and music videos. This year the festival will screen 85 films and videos from 17 countries.
