Director Majid Majidi excited for 'Beyond the Clouds' premiere at IFFI

Director Majid Majidi excited for 'Beyond the Clouds' premiere at IFFI

It has been enforced on the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) to be held in Goa from November 20 to 28. Naturally, the IB Ministry had chose to override the jury decision, without consulting the jury members.

The jury apparently got to know of the changes from an email sent to them by the Directorate of Film Festivals (DFF), under the information and broadcasting ministry, informing them about the films that would be shown in the Indian Panorama section. Nude, the story of a woman's struggle for survival in Mumbai as a nude model, was the jury's unanimous choice as the opening film of the Indian Panorama. A statement issued by the ministry has informed that the feature film section of the Indian panorama will now kick off with Vinod Kapri's Hindi film, "Pihu".

The final list of 26 films also includes mainstream films like Jolly LLB 2, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Ventilator, Poorna and Meghnad Bodh Rahasya.

It is stated that the decision of the IB Ministry is against Clause 8.5 of the Indian Panorama 2017 Regulations, which states that "the decision of the juries shall be final and binding and no appeal or correspondence regarding their decision shall be entertained".

The festival was to start with the Nude, but no longer. Screenwriter Apurva Asrani who is one of the jury members told indianexpress.com, "I had no idea these films had been dropped till yesterday".

According to sources, the Assamese film Xhoixobote Dhemalite and the Odiya movie Khyanikaa have replaced Nude and Sexy Durga. Malayalam film S Durga, screened at the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, is a dark social commentary that is narrated in an engaging manner. But I had an inkling that this might happen, given that it was twice denied censor exemption. The first time it was a retrospective of my earlier films and now it is because of Beyond the Clouds. "I will find a way to reach them through private screenings and global film festivals".
