MUMBAI: NDTV Lumi?re and Alliance Francaise of Madras have organised ‘Experience Thrillers‘, a five day film-festival showcasing the best in horror, suspense, mystery adventure and crime from 5 to 9 August.

Presented by Roca in association with Ford Fiesta- Go Fida, the film festival will be held in Chennai with a new film screened twice a day at 7 and 9 p.m.

‘Experience Thrillers‘ kicks off with The Orphanage, a spine-chilling thriller and Spain‘s official entry for the 2008 Academy Awards. Directed by award-winning young filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona and produced by the renowned Guillermo Del Toro, the thriller stars Spanish actress Bel?n Rueda and Geraldine Chaplin, grand-daughter of Charlie Chaplin.
