Director Onir's 'I AM' has been selected for the feature film line-up at the Kandy International Film Festival starting Wednesday in Sri Lanka.

"Congratulations to all of US #I AM selected at the KANDY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, SRI LANKA @Purab_Kohli @mathurarjun(sic)," Onir posted on his micro-blogging site twitter.

The director delved into multiple topics and wove four different stories about the plight of Kashmiri pandits, gay issues, paedophelia and single motherhood in his people-funded movie. A host of stars like Juhi Chawla, Manisha Koirala, Nandita Das, Purab Kohli, Rahul Bose and two well-known directors - Anurag Kashyap and Anurag Basu - made the film an interesting watch with their brilliant performances.

Apart from 'I AM', another Indian director's film selected for the festival is Murali Nair's 'Virgin Goat', an Indo-French project, which stars the talented Rahguveer Yadav.

The line-up of movies also includes French film 'Fleurs du Mal' by David Dusa, Bangladeshi director Rubaiyat Hossain's 'Meherjaan', Tanzanian director Sherman Ong's 'Memories of a Burning Tree' and Thai film 'Mundane History' by director Anocha Suwichakornpong.

The five-day celebration of global cinema will take place at numerous venues in Kandy, highlighting the work of both emerging and well-established filmmakers from around the world, bringing together artists, international directors and celebrities.

In addition to the screenings, the event will have workshops with filmmakers.
