YRF Release is nominated for the Art Cinema Award at Filmfest Hamburg
“Bachna Ae Haseeno”, the Yash Raj Films production starring Ranbir Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Minissha Lamba, swayed critics and audiences in India and abroad with its fresh treatment, vibrant performances and sunny locales. Now, close on the heels of its release in Germany, comes the news that the film has appealed to critical sensibilities as well in Europe: the film has been nominated for the ART CINEMA AWARD at Filmfest Hamburg. It has also been selected for the official programme, and is part of AGENDA 08.
The "ArtCinema Award" was established in 1969 by the Confédération Internationale des Cinémas d'Art et d'Essai (C.I.C.A.E.) (International Confederation of Art House Cinemas). In Germany the award is given at the Berlinale and at Filmfest Hamburg. What's more, the confederation's extensive network will support the distribution of the winning film throughout Europe. Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein is contributing 5,000 euros to the award in support of PR measures by the German distributor. The international jury consists of the cinema directors Daniel Lavaud (France), Dietmar Zingl (Austria) and Erdmann Lange (Germany).
Bachna Ae Haseeno will have its German premiere in Hamburg on October 2nd 2008, 7:30 pm.
All in all, it's yet another feather in the cap for its young director and cast, and the production house that continues to be the flag bearer for popular Hindi cinema to the world. .
