The 2nd Indian Film Festival of Ireland is set to take place from the 10th to 15th May. The first festival, a phenomenal success, was well received by all in attendance. The purpose of this festival is to make Indian cinema more mainstream, introducing people to the global appeal and popularity of Indian cinema, old and new, and to help craft an environment of co-productions for the Irish and Indian film makers to invest and shoot films in Ireland. To celebrate the Indian Film Festival of Ireland 2011, a new breed of directors, film makers, actors, writers and actresses have been invited to represent the new wave of Indian Cinema, the Indian Film Industry which is now truly global.
