Particularly exciting, these auteurs will host a MASTER CLASS SERIES on Saturday April 4, in which Kashyap will first discuss his development as a director, and then Ali will elaborate on his approach to collaborating with actors.

The fest will conclude with the delightful, coming of age high school comedy, THE MISEDUCATION OF BINDU, featuring rising star Megan Suri, produced by the Duplass Brothers and directed by Prarthana Mohan.

Opening Night Gala: Conversation with Imtiaz Ali
What distinguishes Imtiaz Ali from his contemporaries is his astute grasp of modern love in India.

The red carpet event will take place at ArcLight Hollywood, followed by a dinner reception and after party at Spice Affair in Beverly Hills. Buy tickets.
Thrust into the woes of high school after being homeschooled, desperate Indian American teen Bindu Chaudry (Megan Suri) finds a questionable solution.
