With the acquisition of 140 new titles this year for theatrical release, UTV World Movies has gone beyond television screens to take its audience on a cinematic journey.

The channel has announced its foray into the theatrical release of its award-winning titles with the premiere of Waltz with Bashir, an Israeli animated film that will be followed by The Song of Sparrows and I Always Wanted To Be A Gangster and The Counterfeiters.

Directed by Ari Folman, Waltz with Bashir is a personal account of the horrors of the 1982 Lebanon War. The film will have its premiere at the PVR Phoenix Mills on 29 July that will have a large number Bollywood celebrities including famous directors and stars attending.

One of the film's producers, Roman Paul would join the celebrations that will have a large number of Bollywood celebrities including famous directors and stars attending.

Announcing the launch of the first theatrical release, UTV World Movies Business Head Sameer Ganpathy said, "Being on television that caters to World Cinema for the last 18 months and in the home video business along with Shemaroo Entertainment for the last eight months, we felt that this was the best time to venture into theatrical release of films from this genre."

"Selected of the 700 films already in our library, these films are between one to two years old while a handful are old but cinematic gems," Ganpathy adds.


The winner of the best foreign film award at this year's Golden Globe Awards, the film was also nominated at this year's Academy Awards. The film has also bagged multiple film honours including a Golden Globe award for best foreign film, best animated feature award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and both the best picture award and best foreign language film award from the National Society of Film Critics.
