International film festival in Shimla from 18-20 March 2011

Film division of the Union ministry of Information and Broadcasting has proposed to increase the cash price for the award winning films to be screened during the three-day international film festival here. V Packirisamy director of film division said about 40 documentaries, short duration films and animation films would be shown during the festival to be held from March 18 to 20.
He said this was for the first time that international film festival was being organised outside Mumbai so that more youths and budding talents interested in pursuing film-making as a career could get exposure.
