This year Telugu cinema will go unrepresented at the IFFI 2012. 

The 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI- 2012) will begin in Goa from November 19.

The selection committee of IFFI 2012, received nine entries from Tollywood. But the sad part is that not one film has been selected. 

Why have Telugu films failed to make it to the list? Producer and director P K Manvi said that Telugu films have not impressed the jury. Either they have lacked technical finesse or have had routine stories. 

He also added that films from other languages were better in many aspects. Added to this the non-feature films category also has no Telugu films.
