Marathi film Lapachhapi selected for International Film Festivals - DAY 822

Lapachhapi became the first Marathi film and the first Indian horror film to be in the official selection of the Brooklyn, Hudson and Madrid International Film Festivals. Produced by Jitendra Patil of Midas Touch Movies and directed by the award winning Vishal Furia Lapachhapi meaning Hide N Seek has reached Spanish shores with the Madrid
International Film Festival with five nominations for Best New Director (Vishal Furia), Best Actress (Pooja Sawant), Best Supporting Actress (Usha Naik), Best Editor (Dinesh Poojari) and Best original score (Ranjan Patnaik, Tony Basumatary and Utkarsh Dhotekar).The VFX and post production of the film was done at Jai Shree Krishna Studios, Goregaon East.
The film will hold a world premier at the Brooklyn Film Festival, a moment of great honour because this is the first time in the history of Marathi cinema over a hundred years that a classic horror is being made for an audience that largely consumes comedies and dramas and is targeted at the mainstream audience.
