Delhi for December film festival

Mumbai may be home to Bollywood, but India's capital city Delhi also wants a piece of the movie action.

The first Delhi International Film Festival has been scheduled for this December. Organisers said the event hopes to showcase the world's best cinema with films from 70 countries.

One will be this year's best-picture Oscar-winner, The Artist from France.

The festival was timed to mark the century that Delhi has been India's capital city. It was made the capital of British India in 1911.

Other films slated for the Delhi festival are Daughters Of Hill by Patrizia Landi, Jeremiah by Eran Paz and Mar by Caner Erzincan.

The city already hosts an annual festival of Arab and Asian films, and other Indian cities host global film showcases.
