India Film Fest Features Tributes To Fellini, Elvis

The 26th Intl. Film Festival of India, to be held Jan. 10-26 in Bombay, India’s film capital, will program two complete and markedly contrasting foreign retrospectives.

“Tutto Fellini” will cover representative work of Italian director Federico Fellini, including some advertising spots. The second retro pays homage to Elvis Presley with a package provided by Turner Intl. The retro covers all nine Presley movies as well as two documentaries, “Elvis on Tour” and “Elvis, That’s the Way It Is.” A tribute to Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai also is included.

The festival’s Cinema of the World will feature 1994 festival hits such as Atom Egoyan’s “Exotica” and Tomas Gutierrez Alea’s “Strawberry and Chocolate,” Quentin Tarantino’s much-lauded “Pulp Fiction,” John Waters’ comedy “Serial Mom,” the Coen brothers’ “The Hudsucker Proxy,” Lee Tamahori’s New Zealand smash “Once Were Warriors,” Aki Kaurismaki’s “Take Care of Your Scarf and Moufida Tiatti’s “Les Silences du Palais.”

Director Paul Cox, a regular at Indian film fests, will be in Bombay to present his film “The Exiles.” Other helmers making the trek are Miguel Littin with “Los Nauffragos,” Iceland’s Hrafn Gunnlaugsson with “The Sacred Mound,” Turkey’s Kutlang Ataman with “The Serpent’s Tale” and John Irvin from t he U.K. with “Widow’s Peak.”

From the U.S., Terrence Grace will attend with his film “Mr. Ahmad.” “Ahmad” focuses on an elderly Indian immigrant living in suburban America with memories of a country left behind. The title role is played by noted Indian actor Nasecruddin Shah.
