Not only that, the screening will include Ashvin’s Oscar nominates short film Little Terrorist as a double bill under PVR Director’s Rare initiative.

The Forest stars stars Nandana Sen and Ankur Vikal as a couple from a big city on vacation in the Indian jungle to sort out their troubled marriage when they run into the wife’s ex-lover, Jaaved Jaffery.

Director Ashvin Kumar says, “Finally! The Forest has been lost in the woods for five years and it’s been a heart-breaking journey. There can’t be a more humbling and educating experience than winning an Oscar nomination, producing your first feature film, then being turned down at every door in Bombay for its distribution and release. I hope audiences will vindicate our stand and come out in droves to see The Forest and celebrate this new way of releasing independent cinema!”

PVR Director’s Rare is the recently launched alternative programming initiative of PVR Cinemas to support the theatrical release of critically acclaimed, small independent films.
