Four-day NIFF gets going in Kathmandu

MUMBAI: With an aim to provide a platform for indigenous as well as non-indigenous community toresearch, document, interact and develop information on indigenous cultures, traditions,languages, issues, knowledge and wisdom through the visual medium, the four-day 5th NepalInternational Indigenous Film Festival (NIIFF 2011) organised by Indigenous Film Archive (IFA)began in Kathmandu on 22 April.


Alike earlier editions of NIIFF, this edition also eyes for international recognition of Nepali filmindustry and indigenous community of Nepal.


Said Navin Subba of the NIFF, "In our first attempt, we hardly got few international participants but now there are dozens of films and documentaries made by international film makers."According to Subba, in past couple of decades Nepal film industry used to copy Bollywood and Hollywood movies but at present, the industry and Nepali filmmakers have the quality to tell their own Nepali tales.


A total of 42 films from 20 countries and regions including Australia, Brazil, Burma, Cambodia, China‘s Taiwan, Canada, Finland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, New Zealand, Norway, Palestine, Peru, Sweden, Russia, Vietnam and the United States will be shown at the festival.Among them eight Nepali films including two fictions and six documentaries are being screened.


Fourteen filmmakers and festival organizers are participating in person from eight countries and regions .


78year -old Canadian producer Alanis Obomsawin is a Guest of Honor at the festival.


Pastor also ruled in favor of a prosecution request to play video clips from the last two days of Jackson‘s stage rehearsals. The clips show Jackson rehearsing the songs "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Earth Song". Some of the rehearsal footage was turned into the posthumous hit film "This Is It."


The judge said the footage of Jackson was "relevant as to his demeanor." Murray‘s attorneys had argued that the rehearsal footage was edited and misleading.


Deputy district attorney David Walgren said he wanted the jurors to see the clips because they show Jackson as an "energetic" man who "fully intends in participating in this tour (and) fully intends on living out his life."


Jackson at the time was days away from beginning a series of comeback concerts in London.


Pastor said he will also allow testimony from women with whom prosecutors say Murray, who was married at the time, had a "personal and social relationship." But the judge did not want


jurors to hear about Murray meeting two of the women at strip clubs.


The judge also ruled against a defense request to delve into Jackson‘s troubled finances and numerous lawsuits against him. Pastor said he did not want the trial to become a "salacious analysis of personal financial issues."

Partition: 1947 -- Attempt to create nostalgia

Suddenly, the flavour of the season as far as filmmaking goes, seems to be India and its history, distant as well as recent. Some films, like Indu Sarkar (the recent film about the emergency era), are made to please the people in high places instead of the moviegoer while the latest one, Partition...

Toilet -- Ek Prem Katha may spring a surprise

Unlikely as it may seem, Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha may be on its way to spring a surprise at the box office. In fact, the process started from day two after its release as the film’s collections took huge jump on Saturday followed by another leap on Sunday.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha ... Part fun, part sermon

With little choice of genres left for films after themes like family social, horror and mythology were taken away by TV channels, filmmakers have to find variations in what they are left with: romance, action and comedy.

Film audience rues being taken for granted: stars & others' poor show this week

*What Shah Rukh Khan and director Imtiaz Ali have done with Jab Harry Met Sejal can be called a patch-up job. The distributors may lose money but what Shah Rukh Khan has lost in this one weekend is his 25 years of stardom and goodwill.

Jab Harry Met Sejal......they go bankrupt -- creatively

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a road movie where romance happens on the way. There have been some films on this theme like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and Jab We Met in the romantic- fun category while Dhanak was a beautiful film about two kids.

Word of mouth may help family entertainer

Mubarakan came as a full family entertainer after a long gap, a gap when fillers and mediocre films reigned. However, the film’s opening day collections were poor to put it plainly. To a certain extent, the promotion and the presentation of the film were not quite attractive.
