Chaitanya Tamhane, director of the critically acclaimed multilingual film Court (2015) has been selected as Oscar winning Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón’s protege in the Rolex Mentro & Protege Arts Initiative for 2016-17, IndieWire reported.

Court appeared on several best lists even though it wasn’t India’s submission for Best Foreign-Language Film category in the Oscars.

Some of Cuarón’s best works include Gravity  (for which he won an Oscar), Y tu Mama Tambien, Pan’s Labyrinth and Children of Men.

Tamhane was one of the 18 filmmakers who were selected for this annual philanthropic programme.

Speaking to HuffPost India Tamhane said:

It was a really, really great meeting. His knowledge about India really blew my mind. Apparently, he’d travelled a lot around Maharashtra in the ‘90s, and he knew quite a bit about personalities like Sant Tukaram [17th century poet-saint].
