This event is over.



Adapting stories from novels and plays to a movie is a challenging but interesting process. If you search for “how to adapt a novel for a film” on the Internet, you will get a whole lot of gyan. But it works best to discover the process with a filmmaker who has done that and has gained critical acclaim.

Paddayi is a TuLu film that is adapted from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Many filmmakers have adapted from this work and many more will likely do so in the future also. Paddayi is a special film in that it is adapted in TuLu and also manages to mix local culture and flavour into the story.

Director Abhaya Simha, a graduate of Film and Television Institute Of India (FTII), benefited from his script being picked up by Docskool. The movie has enjoyed a niche audience and is receiving a lot of appreciation for the finesse with which it is made. Suchitra Cultural And Film Academy has hosted several shows of this film, each of which has been houseful. Audiences, critiques and filmmakers love this film alike.

Come, watch the film (with English subtitles) at TERIFLIX and engage in an insightful conversation with the Director Abhaya Simha, noted Film Critique Harish Mallya and former deputy director of BIFFs Anand Vadararaj. This event would be more than just watching film. It would be an excellent opportunity to dive into minute details of filmmaking in general and this film in particular.

Since only 18 passes are sold for this event, each one will get to interact with the panel in depth. Coffee and light-snacks will be served as a part of this event.

PLEASE NOTE: You must be 18 years or older to attend this event.
