Bombay Rose won the Best Animated Film award at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) Best Animated Frames (BAF) awards 2020.
Directed by Geetanjali Rao, the film has been produced by the Cinestaan Film Company, a sister company of Cinestaan Digital Private Limited, which runs this website.
At last year’s Mumbai Film Festival, Bombay Rose won the Silver Gateway award. At the same festival, the film shared the Manish Acharya award for New Voices in Indian Cinema with Achal Mishra’s Maithili-language film Gamak Ghar (2019).
Bombay Rose had its world premiere at the 76th edition of the Venice International Film Festival last August when it was chosen to be the opening film at the Critics Week, becoming the first Indian animation feature to be so honoured.
The film is set on the streets of Mumbai (formerly Bombay) and tells the story of a flower seller who has to choose between protecting the family and allowing herself to fall in love.
Speaking about Bombay Rose in an earlier interview with Cinestaan.com, Rao had said, “My films are about what I see around me, what I feel about it and what social context it lies in. So, naturally, all these ideas came together to make Bombay Rose a love and survival story about these people.”
