Spanish film 'Blancanieves' to close Mumbai Film Festival

'Blancanieves', a 2012 black-and-white silent film, which is Spain's official entry to the Oscars next year, will be the closing film at the 14th Mumbai Film Festival.

Directed by Spanish auteur Pablo Berger, the film premiered at the Toronto festival and won the Special
Jury Prize and an ex-aequo Best Actress "Silver Shell" Award for Macarena Garc�a at the 2012 San Sebasti�n International Film Festival.

Mumbai Film Festival, presented by Reliance Entertainment and organized by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image, is the third only film festival where the film is set to be showcased.

The film inspires a strong sense of cinematic nostalgia and has been rumored to be a tribute to 1920's
European silent films, liberally mixing humor and melodrama.
