A 12-pic Asian Panorama section will be judged by an international jury including Sumitra Peries from Sri Lanka, Sharmila Tagore (India), Nana Djorjadze (Georgia), Pouran Derakhshandesh (Iran) and Philip Cheah (Singapore).

Other features, added to the fest this year, are a section on European pics shot in Asia and a special on Iranian movies.

The Indian government has further pledged continued promotion and funding for the fest, which is organized by New Delhi-based Cinemaya, a quarterly Asian film magazine.
