The people organising i put this out a couple of days ago. Here it is as put out by them.
The curtains came down for “i,” the first annual indie film festival and unconference organised by the Indian Independent Filmmakers Foundation and Sathyam Cinemas with Bharatbala’s Hari Om on Friday morning.
“Independent filmmakers shouldn’t try to release their films like mainstream films because they need time,” Bharatbala told a full house during a panel discussion following the film. “Why can’t we just release it in one city at a time when we don’t have the marketing budgets,” he asked.
Hari Om has been to 46 film festivals and won seven audience awards since it was produced in 2004. The film is expected to hit the halls later this year.
