Israel Goa Film Festival Jury The Kashmir Files Controversy

‘The Kashmir Files’, helmed by Bollywood filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, enters an international film festival

Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, who recently delivered the blockbuster film - ‘The Kashmir Files’, announced that the movie has received an international accolade. ‘The Kashmir Files’ has entered the Switzerland International Film Festival, the international film competition that honours the work of filmmakers from across the globe. The movie was chosen under the ‘Official Entry’ category and director Vivek announced the same on his social media handle. “Happy to inform that #TheKashmirFiles has been selected in the ‘OFFICIAL SELECTION’ category of the prestigious Switzerland International Film Festival. (sic),” wrote ’The Kashmir Files' director in the post's caption.

Written and directed by Vivek, ‘The Kashmir Files’ depicts the story of the Kashmiri Pandit genocide that took place in the Kashmir Valley of India in the 1990s. The movie received mixed reviews from fans and critics, with a section of viewers calling it “politically incorrect” while the rest, comprising of the survivors of the attack, terming it “the untold side of the actual story.” 

Recently at the 53rd International Film Festival of India held in Goa, Israeli screenwriter and film critic, Nadav Lapid, had expressed his dissent regarding the film. However, Lapid retracted his statement after receiving backlash from fans, including from the movie's lead Anupam Kher, who shared stills from ‘Schlinder’s List' - the Hollywood film that sheds light on the European Jews genocide. Kher had captioned the post, "No matter how big the lie is… It is always small in comparison to the truth. (झूट का क़द कितना भी ऊँचा क्यों ना हो.. सत्य के मुक़ाबले में हमेशा छोटा ही होता है.)
