Noyce gets retrospective at International Film Festival of India

A Phillip Noyce retrospective and other Australian and NZ films have been selected to screen at the 42nd International Film Festival of India.

The retrospective of Noyce’s work includes Clear and Present Danger, Catch a Fire, The Quiet American, and Australian films Newsfront and Backroads.

Of the acknowledgement, Noyce said: “I‘m delighted that the International Film Festival of India will share with audiences films spanning my whole career. The screening of Backroads and Newsfront will give Indian audiences a taste of Australian acting icon, Bill Hunter, in two of the roles that first revealed his remarkable talent.”

Noyce will attend the festival and present a day-long master class on the process of translating ideas from concept, through script development, to the finished product.

The film festival, in its Australasian program will also screen local films Oranges and Sunshine, Matching Jack with director Nadia Tass in attendance, and New Zealand films My Wedding and Other Secrets – a cross cultural romance, and drama Matariki about five intersecting stories set around a south Auckland community.

Mitu Bhowmick Lang, who also produces the Indian Film Festival: Bollywood and Beyond, curates the Australasian program at IFFI said: “This is an incredible opportunity for Australian and New Zealand films to reach this massive and diverse audience. I am particularly delighted that directors Phillip Noyce and Nadia Tass will both attend as guests of the Festival.”
