Nandita Das to champion female storytellers at TIFF

Filmmaker Nandita Das is all excited to be the part of Toronto International Film Festival(TIFF) as her upcoming film ‘Manto’ is going to be screened at the prestigious film festival. However, there’s one more reason why Nandita is looking forward to the event.

Her note further read, “We all know that sexism, gender disparity and sexual misconduct are widespread in the film industry. Almost all of us have been privy to it and most have experienced it firsthand. In the past year, the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have shed a much-needed spotlight on the harsh reality faced by women in the industry. While not enough criminal prosecutions have happened yet, it has given hope to women in the industry that silence does not have to be an option. I am glad that finally important festivals are beginning to address this inexcusable, longstanding wrong.”

Kudos to you, Nandita! India definitely needs more filmmakers and artists like you.
