UNINDIAN: AUSTRALIAN SPOTLIGHT FILM & GALA                                         MONDAY, 25 APRIL 2016


On Monday, April 25th 2016 the 17th annual Newport Beach Film Festival will present its Australian Spotlight, an evening celebration of Australian cinema and culture. The event will feature the West Coast Premiere of the highly anticipated film, UNindian, followed by a festive post screening gala.

A beautiful Australian single mother (Tannishtha Chatterjee) of Indian origin, living in Sydney, tries her best to follow her own dream, instead of her parents’. She falls in love with a man (Brett Lee) who does not fit the picture her family would paint for her. For a woman trying to live her own life under the judging gaze of her traditional relations, their union is not only scandalous, it’s UNindian. UNindian is directed by Anupam Sharma and also stars: Brett Lee, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Supriya Pathak, Akash Khurana, John Howard and Sarah Roberts.

“The Festival continues a proud tradition of presenting the very best in Australian Cinema. UNindian is a wonderful, crowd-pleasing, romantic comedy. The directing, acting and music make it one of the Festival favorites” stated Gregg Schwenk, CEO of the Newport Beach Film Festival.
