IFP's Festival Creative Director Nikhil Taneja said in a statement: "In its eighth edition, the IFP team has pulled off a once-in-a-lifetime coup by getting one of the world's most respected directors for an exclusive media interaction, for the first time in India.
"Academy Award-winning screenwriter and Academy Award nominated director Alexander Payne, who has directed some of the best comedy dramas of the last two decades, including the cult hits 'Election', 'About Schmidt' and 'Sideways', has gracefully accepted our invitation for a filmmaking AMA with the IFP audience.
"We are so proud and excited at being able to provide film fans across the country with this opportunity and we can't wait to have him with us on October 13 (via video call)."
