Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Mumbai Film Mart (MFF), which endeavors to find completed and under-production Indian films potential international buyers, Nandita said, "I will be going to Barcelona in a month from now to start shooting for my film".
"This film is called 'Traces of Sandalwood'. It's an all women crew and that's going to have an interesting dynamics because it's wonderful to see a women cinematographer and women art director behind the camera. It will be shot in Barcelona and Mumbai," added Nandita, who has more than 30 films to her credit.
Nandita, who has directed critically-acclaimed "Firaaq", believes film festivals create more space for independent films.
"I have done over 30 films and most of them have been in the independent space. I don't have DVDs of most of the films because many of them couldn't be released. Many of the independent films suffered the most because of not having the skills or platform to release their films," added Nandita.
"While I don't understand the market world still because even I had to face similar challenges for my film 'Firaaq'. It's wonderful that film festivals are presenting an opportunity for several independent films. More the number of festivals, merrier it is for young filmmakers as well audiences," she said.
Nandita was invited as a special guest to support MFF, which will continue till Sunday.
Six Indian films namely "Hunterrr", "Haraamkhor", "The Unseen Sequence", "Placebo", "Illai" and "Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyu Aata Hai" are being exhibited through an initiative called India Project Room, a subsidiary of MFF.
