A cool idea:
Bring Your Own Film Festival
made cooler by holding it
on the sandy beaches of Puri in the eastern Indian state of Orissa
and chilled to sub-zero by
..allowing any film in any format
But how do we know the films are any good? How's this for a guarantee -
The first edition of the festival in 2004 screened a collection of films rejected by that year's Mumbai International Film Festival 2004.
The good folks making it all possible have a blog. I like their promise: no hierarchy, no bureaucracy, no hassles....just sun sand sea and cinema...and more...
(Update: well, whaddayaknow, they have a website too.)
If I was in India, I would be Puri-bound right now.
