Closing Night Q&A

IFFLA 2021 closed with Sthalpuran (Chronicle of Space) by Akshay Indikar, the Marathi film that premiered at Berlinale 2020 and has captured the hearts of audiences at festivals around the world for its breathtaking minimalist exploration of the inner life of its young protagonist.
Long-time IFFLA alum Anurag Kashyap joined Indikar in a Q&A discussion, putting together an exciting up and coming independent filmmaker with one of the most celebrated independent filmmakers of our generation.


The Awards Ceremony and Closing Night are available to stream for passholders in California and India, and will be released on the IFFLA YouTube channel next week.
