Apart from screening some of the best films made across the globe, the Mumbai Film Festival also gives a platform for Indian filmmakers to showcase their talent. There is also a section for Indian films called ‘India Story’, which is a competitive category for Indian movies.
This time, a total of 13 films are competing in this category and they are A Dog and his Man, A Thing of Magic, Aani Mani, Axone, Kaajro, Chivati, Last Headhunters of the Nagas, Iewduh, Sindhusthan, Slow Burn, Kastoori, Nirontor, and Y.
Nicholas Kharkongor’s Axon and Chadrasish Ray’s Nirontor are being considered as the favourites of this category. A specially appointed jury will watch all these films and declare the winner on the 24th of this month.
