Third Annual Atlanta-Indo American Film Festival

This weekend the Atlanta Indo-American Film Festival starts. It's going to be 5 weekends of films from India and the Indian Diaspora. It's getting cold outside and if you're looking for a good place to escape to to get warm, think about hitting the festival one of these weekends. Some of the films that have us in the office intrigued are Sita Sings the Blues and Lions of Punjab. And if you missed The Wold Unseen at the 2008 Atlanta Film Festival here's your chance to catch it again.
