There's more to Indian film than Bollywood

Cue catchy musical interlude with a dance troupe grooving in the alps.

Fear not all you Bollywood haters! This is no Bollywood Bonanzathon!

The Indian Film Festival is all about independent films, and is currently in i's 6th successful year with venues in more than just little old London Town.

If you're a fan of foreign films (not so foreign if you are Indian), that show you a new world, or an old one, or a different one, or make you think, or make you laugh, or make you cry, or make you laugh and cry at the same time, or make you feel something, or anything, then you must go now!

Or, as I said before somewhat dramatically: GOOOOOOOOOO NOOOOOOOOW!!!

Check out the programme here

I missed the first half of the festival. Apparently I've had my head in the sand for a few months. Luckily, through the good planning, and head out of sand behaviour of a good friend, I've now enjoyed an excellent South Indian film called Kaakaa Muttai. That's 'The Crow's Egg' for all you non-Tamil speakers in the house.

It's the story of two of the cutest, little boys in the world who live in a slum and all they want is to taste the pizza from the pizza shop near their home.

I don't want to say anymore, but it was such a good film. Heavy subject matter without being a drag. Great messages without being a preachy sermon....and, just a really good watch.

Here's the horrific picture I took of the poster outside the screen:

My photography skills are truly terrible. Note to self - must work on that!

Before I digress a whole hog more, I'll finish up with some facts. The Indian Film Festival is on until July 26th, and you book online.

So, without further ado...go forth, book, and enjoy!
