Today's Special to open Mahindra IAAC Film Festival

25 September, 2009 By Jeremy Kay
 

David Kaplan’s comedy Today’s Special and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s romance Antaheen – The Endless Wait bookend the Mahindra Indo-American Arts Council (MIAAC) Film Festival.

The ninth annual festival in New York runs from November 11-15 and top brass announced that Vijay Amritraj will present the centerpiece screening of Santosh Sivan’s Kashmir-set Tahaan.

The festival is presented by the Indo-American Arts Council (IAAC) in collaboration with the Mahindra Group.

“I am thrilled that Today’s Special will open MIAAC 09,” Aroon Shivdasani, executive director of the IAAC, said. “We have seen the film grow from its play reading to its staging with Aasif Mandvi, a long-time friend and family member of IAAC.

“We are thrilled to see its development into film and delighted to present a New York film set in our phenomenal diverse city – home of the MIAAC Film Festival.”
