Back to Trivandrum

I am headed back to Trivandrum, flying out from JFK tomorrow evening and landing up at Trivandrum International Airport (sadly, still at T2 and not T3) early on Wednesday morning. The highlight of course if that I will be winging my way out of New York on the world's biggest passenger jet! Yipeee! Stay tuned, folks, there is a lot of catching up to do on the blog!

IFFK 2010

Trivandrum's standard bearer on the world cinema scene, IFFK, has rolled in for yet another edition. For the first time since 2001, I will be missing it, sigh! For the last couple of years, IFFK's been hailed as India's pre-eminent film event, outdoing the official national film festival, now held permanently in Goa, in any and all parameters - the number and quality of films, the size of the audience and the intensity of the experience - that matter to an avid movie buff or professional alike.

For starters, here is the brand new signature film, a bright and colorful cartoon, from Trivandrum's home-grown global animation giant, Toonz.

Stay tuned for more!
