The film has been selected to be among 21 films to be screened at the Goa International Film Festival. They were chosen from 119 entries.

Two Tamil films, 'Periyar' and 'Ammuvagiya Naan' (I named her Ammu) have been chosen for the festival, 'Periyar' director Gnana Raja Sekaran said Thursday.

'Periyar may be India's official entry in international film festivals in the coming year,' he said.
