The Ananth Narayan Mahadevan directorial, Bittersweet, has been nominated for the Jiseok Award at the Busan International Film Festival this year. Bittersweet, an official selection, will also have its world premiere at the festival, and is among seven Indian films at a toned-down festival this year, to be held from October 21 to 30.
ChaitanyaTamhane's Venice award-winner "The Disciple", ShyamMadiraju's "Harami" starring EmraanHashmi, SumanMukhopadhyay's Bengali film "Captive" featuring TanmayDhanania, Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's "A'hr" starring ManjuWarrier and Gaurav Ravi, Ivan Ayr's "MeelPatthar", and PrithviKonanur's Kannada-language "Pinki Elli?" are the other Indian films at the prestigious Korean film festival in 2020.
Mahadevan is naturally happy. "It is indeed a great honour to be recognised at a top A-lister festival like the Busan International Film Festival, the biggest and most prestigious in the Asian continent. The concerted efforts to make a film that meets the standards of global cinema has borne fruit for my producers Suchhanda and ShubhaShetty and is a great shot-in-the-arm for us aiming to break the clutter," he said.
