National Winner ‘I Am’ at Cannes
Highly acclaimed film ‘I Am’ failed to garner huge collections at box office. But it finally gained its due recognition and got the deserving accolades when it was bestowed with two national awards recently. Awarded as ‘The Best Hindi Feature Film’, ‘I Am’ has been hand picked by the organizers of Cannes film festival for a special screening. Film’s director Onir and co-producer have been invited to attend the coveted international film festival and this has given them immense pleasure.
Onir especially exclaimed that such honors encourage filmmakers to keep up with the work and come up with the films fighting all odds. Apart from the special screening, the duo will engage in networking over there as they are slated to meet some international producers in the fest. Here Onir and Sanjay both will be proposing the idea of their future films before the production houses as they wants foreign funding for their films.
