Parramasala focuses on South Asian Film

parramasalaA new festival of South Asian film comes to Australia late next month with the launch of Parramasala in Parramatta in NSW.

The six day independent film festival, which begins on October 31, aims to highlight that there is more to Asian film than Bollywood.

Highlights include Indian film That Girl in Yellow Boots, and The Forgotten Woman, which won the Best Documentary prize at the 2008 Hollywood Film Festival.  

Other events include a Satyajit Ray Retrospective and free lunchtime documentaries.

The festival is based at the Lennox Theatre in Parramatta.
