All change for India's Mumbai Film Festival

19th Jul 2012

Bollywood film fans will notice a host of changes when this year's Mumbai Film Festival gets under way.

A must for film fans enjoying tailor-made holidays in India, the main venues for this year's festival will be the National Centre for the Performing Arts and the Inox theatre in the south of Mumbai. Previously, the event was largely confined to the city's Juhu and Andheri districts.

The festival gives visitors on a city break in Mumbai the chance to round off their holiday to India in style by taking tours around Bollywood film studios.

The festival is celebrating 100 years of film in India and the fact that Bollywood is the world's largest film industry. It will run for a week from October 18.

Other new features include a competition for Indian filmmakers, with £19,100 on offer to the winners and the addition to the board of the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image of high-profile director-producers Anurag Kashya and Sudhir Mishra.
