Three Indian movies will be screened at the 38th Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) from March 27 to April 7.

Richie Mehta’s Indo-Canadian feature Siddharth will also be screened at the gala.
Anurag Kashyap-backed Monsoon Shootout, featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tannishtha Chatterjee, was earlier screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
My name is Salt
My Name is Salt, an observational documentary, shows how India’s monsoon rains flood the salt fields of Gujarat and make thousands of salt workers descend on the desert to harvest one of the world’s greatest commodities.
Siddharth is about Mahendra, a south Delhi street vendor on the run to search for his missing 12-year-old son.
The Hong Kong international Film Festival is organised by Hong Kong International Film Festival Society, an NGO aimed at discovering and promoting creativity in the art and culture of film.
