Kirumi starring Kathir to have international premiere in Toronto!

Debutante director Anucharan is flying high as his first feature film Kirumi, which is slated for release on September 24th, has been invited to have its international premiere at the 19th Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival – Canada’s largest showcase of contemporary Asian cinema. When speaking to Behindwoods, Anucharan excitedly described the moment he learned his first film had been invited abroad:

“I'll treasure that moment forever. When I finished making this movie almost everyone who was involved in the project asked me to send it to various film festivals even before seeing the end product. That was the level of confidence they all had in the movie and I'm very happy that their belief in Kirumi has paid off. Thanks to Reel Asian International Film Festival for this invitation”.

Adding greater depth to this news is that Kirumi will be the first Tamil film ever played by Reel Asian Film Festival! When asked how he is looking forward to accompanying the film and visiting Toronto to interact with audiences at its historic premiere screening, the director, and established film editor, revealed that he’s a bit all over the place!:

“I'm somewhere in the middle of happiness, excitement and nervousness. I'm finding it hard to explain how I feel. The most exciting thing about this trip is waiting to have that adrenaline rush just few seconds before the movie begins. That black screen always gets me. And to have that rush in Canada is going to be something.”

The film will play as part of the annual festival’s lineup on November 7 with a grand premiere screening

Kirumi stars Kathir and veteran comedian Charlie and was co-written by National award winning director M. Manikandan of Kakka Muttai.
