Meg Hamel is the festival director while Allen Ebert is operations director.

Directed by Gaurav Jani, 87 minutes long “One Crazy Ride” in Hindi is a motorcycle expedition on uncharted roads on Himalayas in Arunachal Pradesh state of India. It is stated to be a film about camaraderie, friendship and “never say die” attitude of five motorcyclists in unforgiving terrain and it attempts to capture the experiences and interactions of riders trying to chart a route. Produced by Dirt Track Productions, its music is provided by Ved Nair while Kishore Jadhav is the editor.

Congratulating makers of “One Crazy Ride”, Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed has urged India’s Government and various film bodies to promote independent cinema and help arrange funding for various such ventures. India had the talent, and with proper push, it could develop more Satyajit Rays, Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation, added.
