The closing ceremony announcing the winners would be held on November 30 marked by a life-style show on the theme 'Fashion in Indian Cinema'.


Nearly 6000 delegates are likely to participate in IFFI 2009.


As the preparations for the grand inauguration of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) is underway local filmmakers in Malegaon are going gaga over the inclusion of their films in the festival.


This is for the first time Malegaon filmmakers are getting an international platform for the screening of their films, says Shaikh Nasir, the Director-Producer of many film-remakes in Malegaon.


Two Mollywood films included for the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) are 'Yeh Hai Malegaon Ka Superman' and 'Gabbarbhai MBBS', Nasir says.


The International Film Festival of India (IFFI) would be inaugurated on November 23 by yesteryears Bollywood beauty Waheeda Rehman in presence of Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni.

Under the Golden Jubilee Retro section, the sterling contributions of film persontalities, who have completed 50 years in the industry, namely Asha Parekh, Sharmila Tagore and Saumitra Chatterjeewould be saluted.


Yeh Hai Malegaon Ka Superman – one of the two films to be screened during the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) has already earned praise from prominent filmmakers in India and abroad. The film has been part of the film festivals recently held in United States, Pakistan and China. Faiza Khan – Director of the film has also been awarded for the remarkable work, says Shaikh Nasir.


In October this year during the 11th Osian’s Cinefan – the film festival organized in New Delhi every year in association with the state Government - Yeh Hai Malegaon Ka Superman was screened four times – a privilege shared only by few films. Besides the two screenings for the directors, producers and industry giants, the film was specially screened for 300 students from 10 schools.


While the film was acclaimed by the people like actor Rishi Kapoor, and Directors Anurag Kashyab and Zoya Akhtar, the school teachers found the film as a source of inspiration and motivation for their students.


"Using limited available resources, unfriendly locations and minimal budget, the way this film has been produced is a lesson for our students. Through this film we want to say to our students that if they want to do something then they should not wait. They should start using whatever resources are available with them."
