Delhi sets international film festival in December

NEW DELHI (AP) — Mumbai may be home to Bollywood, but India's capital city wants to have fun at the movies, too.

The first Delhi International Film Festival has been scheduled for this December. Festival director Suresh Kumar Goswami said the festival hoped to showcase the world's best cinema with films from 70 countries.

One will be this year's best-picture Oscar winner, "The Artist" from France.

The festival was timed to mark the century that Delhi has been India's capital city. It was made the capital of British India in 1911.

Other films slated for the Delhi festival are "Daughters of Hill" by Patrizia Landi, "Jeremiah" by Eran Paz and "Mar" by Caner Erzincan.

The city already hosts an annual festival of Arab and Asian films, and other Indian cities host global film showcases.
