Well our 20th Foreign Film Festival started off with a chilly whisper. Due to the extreme cold and high winds, we canceled the first film on January 5, “Bride and Prejudice.” This film has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 1 at 2:00 p.m.
This Sunday, Jan. 12, the weather will be great for the film, “Om Shanti Om.”
ADDED BONUS for attending our Film Festival
Every time you attend one of our films, you may fill out a ticket to be drawn on the final day of the festival (2/1). On that day, the person whose name is drawn will receive the poster shown above!
This original canvas is handpainted by an almost extinct community of Bollywood artists known for their kitschy, glam movie posters and sets. With the Mumbai film industry’s move to digital vinyl billboards, the talent of these fine artists is no longer in demand. In an effort to keep this art form alive, this Edition LMTD signed painting from the hands of the original masters is commissioned exclusively for CB2. Once required to produce up to 20 posters a day during their movie careers, this special initiative provides the artists not only a new source of income, but also the opportunity for a slower pace focused on their skills and passion for painting.
