IFFI jury member Sudipto Sen distances himself from Nadav Lapid`s criticism



Filmmaker Sudipto Sen, who served on the jury of the just-concluded International Film Festival of India (IFFI), took to Twitter to state that the opinion of Israeli screenwriter and director Nadav Lapid on `The Kashmir Files` was entirely his own and not shared by his colleagues on the jury.

Clarifying his position, Sen said: “Whatever has been said by IFFI 2022 Jury Chairman Mr Nadav Lapid about the film `The Kashmir Files` from the stage of the closing ceremony of 53rd IFFI was completely his personal opinion.”

He went on to say: “In the official presentation of the Jury Board to the Festival Director and in the official Press Conference, where we four jury members (the fifth had to leave for a personal emergency) were present and interacted with the press, we never mentioned anything about our likes or dislikes. Both were our official collective opinion.”

Sen concluded by noting: “As jurors, we are assigned to judge the technical, aesthetic quality and socio-cultural relevance of a film. We don`t indulge in any kind of political comments on any film and if it is done, it is completely in a personal capacity — nothing to do with the esteemed Jury Board.”
