Cinema Chaat & the Australian Festival of Travel Writing

Temple has been invited to take part in a panel discussion along with Shalini Akhil, Mitu Bhowmick-Lange and Roanna Gonsalves at the Australian Festival of Travel Writing at 6pm on Friday 29 October:

Bollywood Stories and Contemporary Indian Cool. Indian Film Festival Director and Producer Mitu Bhowmick-Lange, writer and comedian Shalini Akhil, and Bollywood blogger Temple Connolly discuss the influence of Bollywood on their creative projects and writing with Roanna Gonsalves.

And yes, she’s warned them she will be sneaking in more than a passing mention of the South Indian film industries. There are some fantastic writers and photographers at the festival, so it’s quite an honour for our blog to get a gig.
