Nine silent movies will be screened with live music at the 14th Mumbai Film Festival in order to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema and to bring back the era of silent cinema. This will give the audience an idea of what early Indian cinema was like.
Following last year’s roaring response for the French films, the new edition of “Rendezvous with French Cinema” will be hosted by the 14th Mumbai Film Festival in collaboration with the Embassy of France in India and Unifrance.
