The second year of the festival kicked off with a Gala Opening Evening dinner and cocktail at the Busch Campus Dining Hall, Rutgers University, Piscataway. The evening witnessed a packed house.
Mr Sakti Sengupta, the festival director, introduced the festival as well as the guest filmmakers, and talked about the need for supporting such independent film festivals.
As the Chief Guest, the versatile actor Prakash Raj stressed on the importance of the festival, congratulated and encouraged NJISACF to keep doing the great work, and promised to provide support from the Indian film industry for the coming years.
This was followed by highlights from the NJISACF 2008 showcase with trailers from some films and introduction of the directors of the films to the gala opening guests.
Our sponsors, the Open Road Auto Group, EBC Radio and AVS were honored. Without their generous support the festival would not have been the way it was.
