Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you.
I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.
The Indian Film Festival is in full swing in Melbourne! Dancing, singing, incredible plots and pure escapism is typical and popular Bollywood, but this festival is so much more.
With films ranging from art house to Bollywood, rarely seen films to South Indian action, this festival is a complete mosaic of Indian film culture.
Highlights include the Hindi film Michael, starring one of India's finest actors, Naseeruddin Shah and Memories in March, starring Rituparno Ghosh, one of India's most respected and fascinating filmakers who will also host a Q&A session. Delhi Belly has received widespread critical acclaim and currently holds a 91% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average rating of 6.6 and Urami, the second most expensive Malayalam (Mollywood) film ever made, is a period fantasy set in the 16th century.
The Indian Film Festival aims to support broader cultural ties and invites local filmmakers to mine the wealth and knowledge and experience of India's leading film practitioners by attending one of the four masterclasses being held.
The complete screening schedule and festival events are available on the website.
