WHAT'S ON: DELEGATE Registration | FILM LIST- International Competition, Malayalam Cinema Today, Indian Cinema Now |
For too long now, new Indian cinema has been like a sneeze that wom't come. We would fill up our lungs deep in anticipation...then slump back, quietly rolling our eyes heavenward. It was odd. The place was swarming with young fellows overdosing on Pedro Almadovar, Alejandro Inarritu, Majid Majidi and Kim Ki-Duk. Everyone has argued endlessly about whether Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionare is a brilliant film or an outrage. There's an new generation now graduating in mass media; academia have post-doctorates fattening on theses on post-modernist, post-globalised Indian film: Facebook and internet blogs are clogged with everyone-can-be-a-critic posts. Film festivals, movie websites and film clubs are breaking out like a purple rash. So where was the good new Indian cinema? Something had to give.

All that seething cinematic talent, it seems, has been gathering force and we should see the first of a series of convincing explosions of talents in 2010.
