Rima Das’ Assamese film, VILLAGE ROCKSTARS to make its World Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival 2017 on September 8. VILLAGE ROCKSTARS is the only Indian film to be screened in the competition section, DISCOVERY, which features directors from across the world to watch out for.

The movie is about a girl, Dhunu, who has grown up in deprivation. She learns to fend for herself in the hostile surroundings while nurturing her dream to own a guitar someday. 
 
The film was selected among the Film Bazaar Recommends at NFDC Film Bazaar 2016. From Film Bazaar the film got picked up by Matthew Poon and was officially selected for the 2017 Marche du Film (Cannes) Work-In-Progress Lab at the 15th Hong Kong-Asia Film Financing Forum and won the WIP Lab project.
 
The director-cinematographer-editor-producer Rima Das shares her joy, “I planned VILLAGE ROCKSTARS 3 years ago. While making the film I always stayed true to my vision and I am glad that our labor of love is premiering at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival 2017.  It’s a great honor that Village Rockstars is competing with the best films from across in the world.”
 
Rima adds, “I dedicate the film to my non-professional child actors who believed in my vision and gave so much time to the film and gave a remarkable and honest performance.”
