Marathi Film Sthal Wins Big At Toronto Film Festival

Director Jayant Digambar Somalkar's debut Marathi film 'Sthal' (A Match) won the top Asian award on Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival for its sheer raw power.
The film is the story of the fight of a young woman against the oppressive patriarchy which forces its decisions on her life.
Dedicating the NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asia Pacific Cinema) award to “all the brave women of the world who challenge their adverse circumstances,” Somalkar said this film is also very personal to him “as it was shot in my hometown where I was born.”
Meenakshi Shedde, who as TIFF's Senior Programme Advisor for South Asia, was instrumental in bringing the film to this festival, said: “I am absolutely delighted with the NETPAC Award going to Sthal (A Match).”
