Stuttgart film fest connects art with commerce

he 4th Bollywood And Beyond Film Festival got off to an excellent start on July 11 with the enthusiastic audience response to its opening film Outsourced. Director John Jeffcoat and lead actor Josh Hamilton from the US and Ayesha Dharker from the UK, who arrived in Stuttgart hours earlier, had to bow on stage repeatedly at the protracted applause. The film has already been sold in Germany to Concorde Home Entertainment. It will release in the US towards late September in nine cities.

India in Stuttgart

Last night we were entertained by the Bhangra Brothers and Juggy D at the Bollywood Boogie Night until 5am. Great fun at another day of the Bollywood and Beyond Festival of Stuttgart, Germany. The night before we had the pleasure of a live performance by the Bombay Dub Orchestra. These guys are tremendous musicians who bring a modern vibe to great classical Indian music. If you enjoyed the music from our film you should check out their album, and if you have a chance to see them live -don't miss out!

We've had some time to explore Stuttgart and even had a chance to visit the Schmuck Basar! This is a great walking city and supposedly one of the safest in Germany. I have to wonder if the town in 'Hot Fuzz' was modeled after it...
Ayesha had to leave a few days ago for an audition in London but Josh and I have one more night before we head home tomorrow.

Tonight is the Awards dinner and the closing night film Vanaja, a great film if you haven't seen it already. The sun is out again and the heat is back with a vengeance. Josh and I will be off shortly in search of a fresh Stuttgart pretzel.

Bye und auf Wiedersehen!

Outsourced Opens Bollywood and Beyond

Guten Tag!

Last night we screened as the opening night film for the Bollywood and Beyond Film Festival in Stuttgart, Germany. We had a fantastic screening and a wonderful reception from the German audience who reassured us that it would be a big hit in Germany.

I'm here with Josh hamilton who plays Todd and Ayesha Dharker who plays Asha. It's the first time in Germany for all three of us and it's been fantastic so far. This is also the first time that we've been together since we finished the film. Great to be together again. This is also Josh's first festival experience since he has been tied up with Coast of Utopia in New York.

We had a nice walk down the red carpet which led to a bar stocked with premium single malt scotch, a nice welcome indeed! We'll be frolicking in Stuttgart for the next several days and I'll try to continue posting pictures of our adventures. The Bombay Dub Orchestra will be performing a concert here tomorrow night which should be great. I've also heard the pretzels are not to be missed. We shall see...

I met our German distributor who is keen on getting the film out to an audience very soon and I'm hoping that it will happen parallel to our US theatrical release which begins September 26th.
