Just announced: Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan will be the guest of honour at this year’s River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival in beautiful Florence/Italy – always my favourite festival of the year.

The festival will hold a special tribute to Khan who next appears in Colin Trevorrow’s „Jurassic World“. There will be screenings of his films „Qissa“, „The Namesake“ and „Paan Singh Tomar“, plus seven episodes of the third season of the HBO series „In Treatment“.

According to Wikipedia, Irrfan Khan has appeared in more than 30 Bollywood films (as of 2013). Khan’s English-language mainstream work includes character roles in movies like „New York“, „I Love You“, „A Mighty Heart“, „Slumdog Millionaire“, „The Amazing Spider-Man“, and „Life of Pi“.

The festival runs from December 6 to 12, 2014, and will showcase over 40 films. It was founded by my friend Selvaggia Velo.

Last year’s guest of honour was Shabana Azmi. During a Q&A session, I shot a short clip of her talking about roles in „Fire“ and other controversial movies:

Susheel Kurien talks about „Finding Carlton“ (a short clip I filmed last year):



One of the strongest performances was contributed by Tannishta Chatterjee whom I caught doing an impromptu a capella session in the streets of Stuttgart/Germany around 1 a.m. in July 2012.
