Farooki receives Asian Cinema Fund for Post-production 2012

Post  Admin on Mon Aug 27, 2012 6:02 am

Mostafa Sarwar Farooki joins legendary Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf and young Japanese filmmaker Atsushi Funahashi in receiving the 'Asian Cinema Fund for Post-production 2012' for their respective upcoming projects. Farooki received the grant for his film “Television”, while Makhmalbaf -- widely acclaimed for his works such as “The Day I Became a Woman”, “Kandahar” and “Blackboards” -- received the grant for his upcoming venture “The Gardener”.

“I am glad to receive such a big boost, especially along with a master filmmaker like Makhmalbaf. This is surely another indication that our cinema is gradually getting noticed in international circuits,” Farooki shared his delight in an email, as he is in South Korea at present.

Funahashi received the grant for “Under the Cherry Tree”.

Every year filmmakers from Asia apply for this grant and the organisers choose three movies they consider “important films for the festival circuits”. The prize money ranges from 50,000-70,000 US dollars.

As per the regulation, the recipient filmmakers would get the chance to finish post-production work for their respective films in South Korea.

“Television”, the fourth feature film by Farooki, highlights rural characters rather than urbanites and circles around the first television to arrive at a village. Mosharraf Karim, Chanchal Chowdhury and Nusrat Imroz Tisha appear as lead characters in the film. The film is a joint production by Chhobial, Star Cineplex and Mogador Film (Germany). The film is expected to be released in the later part of this year.

It should be mentioned that “Television” has received the Asian Cinema Fund award for script development at the Pusan Film Festival.
