‘Peddlers’ heads to Toronto film festAugust 1st, 2012 - 5:54 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) After the 65th Cannes International Film Festival, debut director Vasan Bala’s “Peddlers” is now set for screening at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next month. He is elated.
“It’s great that the film has been selected at Toronto after Cannes. Since the French press sighted a very American independent influence on the film, I am quite curious how it will be received here,” Bala said in a press statement.
“Peddlers” is a thriller about two parallel love stories - one about a cop and his married neighbour and the other of a girl on a mission and an aimless guy.
Co-produced by Eros International, Guneet Monga and Anurag Kashyap, the movie is scheduled to be screened as part of the City to City section with an aim to bring global cities to Toronto audiences, and the focus will be on Mumbai this year.
“TIFF is among world’s top movie events, and is a gateway for international films into the north American region. Eros International saw the potential in the film the moment they saw it and decided to back it up,” Monga said in a press statement.
The film features actors like Gulshan Devaiah, Siddharth Menon, Kriti Malhotra and Nimrat Kaur.
TIFF will be held Sep 6-16 this year.
