Bachna Ae Haseeno was the latest venture from the Yash Raj Films production starring Ranbir Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone, and Minissha Lamba. Now, close on the heels of its release in Germany, comes the news that the film has been nominated for the Art Cinema Award at Filmfest Hamburg. It has also been selected for the official program, and is part of Agenda 08.
The Art Cinema Award was established in 1969 by the International Confederation of Art House Cinemas (C.I.C.A.E.). In Germany, the award is given at the Berlinale and at Filmfest Hamburg. The confederation's extensive network will support the distribution of the winning film throughout Europe. Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein is contributing 5,000 Euros to the award in support of PR measures by the German distributor. The international jury consists of the cinema directors Daniel Lavaud (France), Dietmar Zingl (Austria), and Erdmann Lange (Germany).
Bachna Ae Haseeno will have its German premiere in Hamburg on October 2, 2008, 7:30 pm. Sure that gives a reason for Siddharth Anand to celebrate!
