The 19th edition of the festival will open with a gala screening of Michael Winterbottom's The Look Of Love on April 11 and close with Mira Nair's The Reluctant Fundamentalist on April 21.

This year the festival will celebrate a century of Indian film with a dedicated strand from the country and will celebrate the work of maverick Russian director Alexey Balabanov in a section of his films. They will also present Sir Tom Courtenay with a lifetime achievement award.

Families, meanwhile, can enjoy a series of Tom And Jerry fun days - showing selections of the classic cat and mouse shorts.
