    Indian Film Festival Gets "Cooking"
    Cooking with Stella
    Shirya Saran stars in "Cooking with Stella"; the film opens the 2010 Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles at ArcLight Hollywood.

    Bollywood by Night events, documentaries, celeb-filled opening and closing galas, and a bevy of great films are the hallmarks of the 2010 Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles.

    It's the eighth outing of the festival, and each year is a bit different; much of last year's festival spotlighted "Slumdog Millionaire" star Anil Kapoor.

    But themes and touchstones remain, like solid shorts programs and big-star vehicles and a number of lauded documentaries. Plus Rhythm Village in the ArcLight Courtyard. Think four nights of DJs and singers and dancers and musicians like violinist Gingger Shankar, from Wednesday, April 21 through Saturday, April 24.

    The movies will be shown at ArcLight Hollywood, starting with the opening night film "Cooking with Stella" on Tuesday, April 20. "The Waiting City" from Australia closes the fest on Sunday, April 25.
