I’ve been contacted by Anup Kurian who is the writer director of Manasarovar asking for a plug…so here goes:
Manasarovar was made for about 30000 pounds on a 16MM camera bought from EBAY and has won many awards and participated/selected in prestigious festivals.
– Aravindan Puraskaram for Best Debut Director in India
– Gollapudi Srinivas National Award for Best Debut Director in India
– Official Selection – London Film Festival 2004
– Opening Film, Indian Panorama, International Film Festival of India, Goa, 2004
– Best Film and Special Jury Prize, International Film Festival of Mumbai, 2005
– Fukuoka International Film Festival, Fukuoka, Japan, 2005
If our film attracts a good crowd in Glasgow we can get more theatre bookings in UK. It would be great if you can mention the film and the screenings in Glasgow in your blog.
– Sunday February 27, 2PM and Monday February 28, 8.45PM at Glasgow
Needless to say we do not have a marketing budget and the only marketing is contacting bloggers like yourself and requesting reviewers from main stream media to watch the film. Later the film continues at Dundee, Brentford, Kilburn etc. In April Manasarovar will release in India and later this year hopefully in USA.
