Beyond Fest to Feature Special Tollywood Programming With 'RRR' Director S.S. Rajamouli – Collider

Rajamouli is coming from Tollywood to Hollywood.
Beyond Festival has announced today the presence of RRR filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli as part of a special Tollywood programming, “From Tollywood to Hollywood”. Built in partnership with the American Cinematheque, the special programming will honor the revolutionary Tollywood director, featuring multiple Rajamouli films presented in their native Telugu language with English subtitles.
While Rajamouli got international recognition after the release of the epic action film RRR, the director is one of the main creative minds behind the productions of Tollywood, the Indian film industry of Bengali-language movies. So, the Beyond Fest programming will allow people who enjoyed RRR to discover other works by Rajamouli, including Baahubali: The Beginning, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Eega, Maryada Ramanna, and Magadheera.
Rajamouli will also be available for a Q&A session where the audience will get the opportunity to learn more about the filmmaker’s creative process and his past, present, and future projects. The Q&A session will be held after a nine-hour marathon of Baahubali: The Beginning, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, and Eega, taking place on Saturday, October 1. The programming will also have special screenings for RRR on Friday, September 30; Magadheera on Friday, October 21; and Maryada Ramanna on Sunday, October 23.
