Heyy everyone!

Has anyone heard of the famous Cannes Film Festival that is held every year in France?!

Also... Devdas was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival! (Though it was not eligible for an award)

And this year... It is coming up in May!!

Mani Ratnam's Guru is being screened this year! (although, i'm not sure if it has been entered for an award... does anyone know about this?)

So, my question is... what are your thoughts on it??

Do you feel it is something to be proud of that Indian/Bollywood films are being internationally recognised in this way?? That more people worldwide are appreciating Indian cinema?

Please share ur thoughts! Big smile

I feel it is a great oppturnity not only for India but for the whole world to see their talent there. It combines all the countries and makes us realize it doesnt matter from which country the movie is coming from. Its the art that matters. Embarrassed

thats also veryy true!! and i completely agree!! thats what i like about award shows in general! it recognises the talents of soo many people! and rewards them for their hard work and dedication!

so its naturally a proud thing for any country and director/producer/actor, etc  to see their film being screened there!
