Increasing women participation, changing landscape of Indian cinema: Toronto festival

Increasing women participation, changing landscape of Indian cinema: Toronto festival

New Delhi, Sep 13 (UNI) The steadily increasing number of women behind the camera in India is enhancing the quality and visibility of cinema through sensitive storytelling, according to participants of an industry conference at the Toronto film festival.
At the ongoing 45th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), one of the major sessions during its industry conference on Saturday was 'Spotlight on Women in Indian Cinema'. Supported by the Consulate General of India in Toronto, the virtual conference was attended by filmmakers Leena Yadav and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and actor-director Tannishtha Chatterjee.
"There are many more women, as well as men, joining the film industry today offering healthy competition," said Leena Yadav, whose feature film 'Parched' focussing on domestic abuse and violence against women was part of the Toronto festival official selection in 2015.
