Konkani film-maker seeks distributors

PANAJI: The producer of Goa's latest Konkani language film "Antarnad" (Inner Voice) is looking for distributors from the neighbouring State of Karnataka to screen the film in Konkani-speaking areas, including Mangalore.
The film, which was premiered at the latest edition of the International Film Festival of India here, will be released at a local multiplex here on Thursday. The State Government has exempted the film from entertainment tax, said Rajendra Talak, producer and director of the film. He said the film was simultaneously made in Marathi under the title "Saawali" and would be released in Pune on Thursday.
"Antarnad" is Mr. Talak's third film and the second to be premiered at IFFI. He is now planning to make a bilingual film in Konkani and Hindi for which he has received a proposal. Mr. Talak told presspersons on Tuesday that his ambition was to take Konkani language films to national and international audiences. Mr. Talak said he would be happy to screen his film for Konkani language audiences in other states.
