  1. Tumbbad

    Rahil Anil Barve , Adesh Prasad / 104 mins
    India, 19th century: on the outskirts of a decrepit village called Tumbbad lives Vinayak, the stubborn, conniving bastard son of the village lord, obsessed with a mythical ancestral treasure. He suspects the secret lies with his great-grandmother, a cursed witch sleeping for centuries. Confronting her finally puts him face to face with the guardian of the treasure, an evil fallen god. What starts with a few gold coins, quickly spirals into a reckless, perpetual yearning, spanning decades. Vinayak’s greed keeps escalating until he unearths the biggest secret of all, something more valuable than the treasure itself.

  10. Harmless

    Vishesh Mankal / 20 mins
    Harmless begins as a crime-thriller and develops into a dramatic adventure with a little bit of romance thrown in. It can be seen as a mix between “Bonnie and Clyde” and “It Happened One Night”. Made on a tight budget and without financial backing, “Harmless” is a polished, fast-paced thrill-ride from start to finish.
