user

With time what follows the individual filmmaker’s dream as it becomes realized into a film, it grows beyond the filmmaker’s personal vision and becomes the dream of all who are involved in its making. And further, if that film lives and thrives over the years it becomes myth-like, a livi...

He goes all out to invite as many big name stars as possible and even claims that the worst nightmare of his ten year posting as festival dire...
