Looking back at River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival 2014 … and some Florence tips

with one comment

This year, I was only able to enjoy River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival for five days. But it was my tenth time in a row – and I got to see a particularly fascinating special guest (Irrfan Khan – you can watch more videos of his Q&A sessions here).

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”.

River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival 2013

My final (and favourite!) film festival of the year always is the lovely River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival in Florence/Italy (flickr photo album). This year (2013), its 13th edition will take place from Friday, November 22, until Thursday, November 28, at beautiful Cinema Odeon on Piazza Strozzi, followed by a weekend in Rome (November 29 to December 1) at Nuovo Cinema Aquila, via L’Aquila 68).

The programme has just been released today.

Following 2012’s special guest Amitabh Bachchan (video below), this year’s guest of honour will be Shabana Azmi (photo). Wikipedia: “(…) She made her film debut in 1974 and soon became one of the leading actresses of Parallel Cinema, an Indian New Wave movement known for its serious content and neo-realism. (…) Azmi has appeared in over 120 Hindi films in both mainstream and independent cinema, and since 1988 she has acted in several foreign projects.”

Wer wie ich nur rudimentär Italienisch spricht (wobei „rudimentär“ bei mir die Übertreibung des Jahrhunderts ist), aber beim Italien-Urlaub nicht auf einen mobilen Internet-Zugang zu halbwegs zivilen Preisen verzichten will, ist geneigt, sich schon vor dem Reiseantritt schlau zu machen.

Z. B. durch Recherche bei Twitter-Kontakten, im Fragen-Forum Quora und natürlich per Google. Gibt man in der Suchmaschine seines Vertrauens die Suchbegriffe „mobiles Internet / Prepaid / Italien“ ein, gelangt man zu jeder Menge vermeintlich hilfreicher Seiten. Amateure und Profis geben in Blogs und auf den Websites von Fachzeitschriften viele tolle Tipps.

From Ganges to Arno: 11th River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival

with 5 comments

Since 2005, my final (and favourite) film festival of the year has been River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival in beautiful Florence/Italy. It is the first international festival entirely devoted to films from and about India – a labour of love of director Selvaggia Velo who mainly selects non-Bollywood movies: independent films, shorts and documentaries. I’m looking forward to the 11th edition starting tomorrow (Friday, December 2, 2011).

Qype: Tijuana in Firenze

Eine meiner Lieblingsspeisen im einst besten mexikanischen Restaurant Berlins (Mexico Lindo, ich erwähnte es kürzlich im Beitrag über die Londoner Taqueria) war ein Käsefondue, in das Chorizo gebröselt wurde (die spanische Paprika-Knoblauch-Wurst). Klingt unspektakulär, schmeckte aber bestens.

Dieses wunderbare Gericht habe ich seitdem nirgendwo mehr gefunden – bis zum vergangenen Dezember in Florenz. Und zwar im Restaurant Tijuana, das wie ein systemgastronomischer Mexikaner wirkt, mich aber bei meiner Stippvisite durchaus überzeugte.
