New Delhi, March 4 (IANS) Having already traversed the world festival circuit in places such as Berlin, Tokyo, Toronto and Doha, Abhay Deol’s ‘Road, Movie’ has been selected for the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. The movie is the first Hindi movie to go to the fest, said the actor.
‘The New York Times has confirmed that we are also in for the Tribeca Film Festival, New York. It’s the first Hindi movie to be selected there,’ said Abhay.
‘Of all the movies, it’s the first time that a foreign film has been selected there,’ said producer Susan B.Landau.
Co-produced by Ross Katz and Landau, the 95-minute Indo-American film has been directed by Dev Benegal. It also stars Tannishtha Chatterjee, Satish Kaushik and debutant Mohammed Faizal Usmani.
Abhay and Landau were in the capital Thursday evening with Usmani to promote the film at the PVR Anupam, Saket. The meet was followed by a special screening of the movie for underprivileged kids organised by the Salaam Balak Trust.
Founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff in response to the Sep 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre, the annual New York festival begins April 21 and will run until May 2.
