Star-Studded jury adorns SMTV Film Festival

2007 will see the advent of the 2nd edition of the Sports Movies & TV (SMTV) Mumbai International Festival, organized by Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs (FICTS). This festival, set to run from January 18th to 21st, calls for sports-based entries under short film and documentary categories. A star-studded panel has been put together to evaluate the entries. This includes filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, top cop Javed Ahmed, actress Sarika, sports personality Michael Ferreira and film critic Shraddha Sukumaran. Some of the biggest names from Hollywood as well as European Cinema have participated in the festival before. This also represents Indias entry into the grand finale of “Sport Movies & TV” to be held in Milan for the coveted Guirlande d Honneur. The Mumbai International Challenge has been introduced, in recognition of Indias growing contribution to International Cinema and Sports. The films would be screened at multiple venues like NGMA (National Gallery of Modern Arts), KETNAV Theatre (Pali Hill) amongst others. Lets hope this festival with its path-breaking concept receives tremendous response from Mumbai.
