1 subtitling issues continue
You will definitely get seats at the screenings of the Mumbai Film Festival if you chose to head to any of the suburban venues — Versova or Sion — but whether you’ll get to watch the film as you’d like to, we can’t say.
Delegates, who visited Cinemax Sion on Tuesday to watch Children Of Sarajevo, came away disappointed as the subtitling of the film was completely off. The theatre staff agreed to replay the film 15 minutes after it had begun, but even that didn’t help the situation. After the delegates complained again, even they could not do anything as according to them, ‘no one from the festival was present at the venue’.
2 In the nick of time
The screening of Michael Haneke’s Amour was eating into Aditya Bhattacharya’s film, BMW: Bombay’s Most Wanted. Those who wanted to watch the latter either had to walk out of the Palm d’Or winning film or remained afraid of missing the opening of BMW. But luckily, Aditya made sure his film began a few minutes late so he could accommodate the crowd rushing to the venue of his screening.
