Now that the day-wise schedule of the 18th Mumbai Film Festival is out, the list below will represent the best possible film choices to make in the available time slots everyday from the 21st to 27th of this month.
This list is designed in a feasible manner taking into account the distance and time taken between each venue, so that the discerning viewer can actually follow it to the T.
For those who don’t have the time to make a list, or need a quick-fix auto-form solution, this list is somewhat definitive, with little margin for error.
The opening ceremony is on the 20th at the Opera House, a landmark coincidentally restored for its official grand opening a day later.
In bold letters are the big-ticket festival titles, which may require you to stand in line well in advance.
HERE WE GO.
