Once in a while, Indian film festival circuits are bowled over when extraordinary stories from the Northeast region make their appearances.Starting from 2016, the region has had a significant run cinematically.


PradipKurbah, a filmmaker synonymous with Khasi films from Shillong, Meghalaya made headlines with his latest work, ‘Lewduh’ (or Market in Khasi), which premiered at 24th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) 2019, a rare and prestigious feat. The 94 minute film is about the lives of everyday people and their stories, shot entirely in a crowded market, the oldest and largest traditional markets in Shillong. The Busan Festival held annually in South Korea is big and for the two times national award winning filmmaker (RI: Homeland of Uncertainty, 2013 and Onaatah, 2016) is the icing on the cake of his filmmaking career.
