Australia’s High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu said, “Australians and Indians alike are great fans of cinema. As filmmakers, both our countries have captivated audiences around the world with distinctive story-telling and cinematic excellence.”

“Australia is a vibrant, multicultural country; home to the world’s oldest continuous culture, as well as Australians who identify with more than 300 ancestries. This rich, cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths, and one of the ways we are able to share this with the world is through film,” she said.

Sidhu added she is “delighted that we could share uniquely Australian stories and highlight Australian talent on and off screen through the diverse range of films presented as part of our Australia Cinema Fest showcase. I hope that Indian audiences will enjoy them.”

The film showcase has been curated by Mitu Bhowmick Lange, who is the producer of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.

Four award-winning films – ‘Gurrumul’, ‘Lost and Found’, ‘Brothers’ Nest’ and ‘Trespass’ – will feature at the Delhi International Film Festival; critically acclaimed children’s short animation ‘The Lost Thing’ will be showcased at the Jio MAMI Film Festival; and the Chennai International Film Festival will screen some of the most significant features and short films produced in Australia in recent years, including ‘Breath’ and ‘What if it Works’, amongst others.

Australia will also be the focus country at the 24th edition of the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF). Many award-winning Australian films will be screened and some of Australia’s celebrated filmmakers will be there to showcase their work. Another addition to the film showcase will be special screenings of ‘The Song Keepers’, a film that tells the joyous and poignant story of an Aboriginal women’s choir and their historic tour of Germany.
