Ever since the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) found a home for itself in Goa, the state has welcomed the festival and its participants with open arms.
Such is the spirit and hospitality of the state, that there are multiple exciting events and attractions lined up during each edition of the festival, leaving delegates itching to come back again.
Apart from the festival screenings, masterclasses and discussions here are some of the activities waiting to be explored, experienced and enjoyed at the 53rd edition of IFFI at Goa.
The Festival mile or the sidewalk starting from Kala Academy in Panaji to the premises of the Entertainment Society of Goa will be decorated with fascinating art installations.
By free screening of some of the mesmerizing content that IFFI delegates enjoy, IFFI 53 challenges those who have not registered to taste the celebration of cinema and see whether they can choose to not join the delegates and register for the next edition.
Though the screenings, discussions, and master classes themselves promise plenty of entertainment, to explore the limits of fun and recreation further, Entertainment Zones will be set up at Bhagwan Mahavir Children’s Park and the Art Park.
These entertainment zones will be open to delegates and non-delegates alike during the festival period. Both locations will feature live performances, art installations, and of course, food stalls.
The International Film Festival of India (IFFI), founded in 1952, is among Asia’s most prominent film festivals. The idea of the International Film Festival of India is to celebrate films, the stories they tell, and the people behind them.
The festival is conducted every year by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India in collaboration with the Entertainment Society of Goa, Government of Goa, the host state.
