The film Yo Soy La Juani (My Name is Juani) by Bigas Luna will be screened in Thiruvananthapuram but not in Delhi.

The Spanish film festival has been organised by the Cultural Centre of the Spanish Embassy and Casa India in collaboration with the Directorate of Film Festivals.

Organised by the Australian High Commission in collaboration with the Directorate of Film Festivals, the Australian film festival, Australian Visions, will open in the capital at Sirifort Auditorium on 6 March with Jindabyne by Ray Lawrence.
