A feature of most festivals is representation of international film-makers and critics.
This was strongly evident in the 2010 festival. A number of directors and producers were present to accompany the screenings of their films. Film-makers and critics also served on the juries. Several of them participated in the workshops for students.
The countries represented were quite diverse. From East Asia, there were visitors from China and Japan . From South East Asia, a director from Indonesia . As would be expected, there was a strong contingent from India , ranging from Delhi to Mumbai and Assam . Pakistan was also represented as well as a large group from Iran . Bob Hercules came from the United States with a selection of his short documentaries. Visitors from European countries came from the Netherlands , France , Switzerland and Italy . There were also visitors from Australia .
A special feature of the festival was the presence of film students.
They attended a number of screenings and gathered for several days of workshops, organised by Mr Badal Rahman and facilitated by Indian director Mr Anwar Jamal. International visitors, including Mr Bob Hercules (US), Ms Clementine Ederveen (the Netherlands ), Ms Isabelle Millard ( France ), Ms Robyn Hughan ( Australia ), Mr Steve Warne ( Australia ), met with the students for presentations, Q and A, and discussions.
