The Gujarati film Last Film Show aka Chhello Show is India’s official entry to the Best International Feature Film category for the Oscars.

The film directed by Pan Nalin was produced by Siddharth Roy Kapoor, Pan Nalin, Dheer Momaya and Mark Duale.

Amid all the speculation that whether or not RRR or The Kashmi Files would make it to the Oscars this year, it was confirmed that Last Film Show has finally made it to the final nominations.

The film has won several awards on international forums.

Last Film Show or Chhello Show is a part-autobiographical drama that captures the charm of the western region of Gujarat while paying homage to the cinema of the past.

The story is set against the backdrop of cinemas in India witnessing a massive transition from celluloid to digital, where hundreds of single-screen cinemas stand dilapidated or have disappeared altogether.
