Nobody invites my films to festivals: Imtiaz Ali

Mumbai: Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali wonders why nobody invites his movies to film festivals, and says he is only attracted to such galas for a chance to explore a new place.

The "Tamasha" director recently made "#IndiaTomorrow", a five-minute short film which shows a sex worker having a conversation with her client about the stock market, with a powerful message in it.

Asked if is he keen to take his short film to film festivals, Imtiaz told IANS: “They have plans, but I don’t know much about festivals. I am keen to push it anywhere and wherever it reaches. (If it goes to festivals) I will get a chance to go there and see a new country... festivals attract me only for that.”

He quipped that he keeps telling Anurag Kashyap that "you keep going for festivals, some time take me also along with you... I will get to explore a new country".

"But nobody invites my films to festivals so what to do," Imtiaz said.
