‘These’ films are selected for the IFFI-Goa Section

The State of Goa has been successfully playing host to the International Film Festival of India since 2004; a platform that showcases the Indian and international films to participants from across the globe. In recent years, the Goan film industry itself has grown by leaps & bounds and is slowly stepping onto the national scene. It is no wonder then, that Konkani cinema has carved a place for itself at IFFI. The film festival this year also will be celebrating Goan films under two distinct sections i.e. the premiere and non premiere section.

This year for the 54th edition of IFFI 2023, we received total of 20 entries in both the sections. Out of which 7 films are selected by Jury members.

The jury members on board were Manas Choudhury, Chairman of Jury, Ajit Rai, Member of Jury and Kamakhya Narayan Singh, Member of Jury, who are distinct professionals from the Indian Film Industry.

The selected films in respective sections are as follows:-

It has always been the endeavor of the festival authorities, especially the Entertainment Society of Goa to promote Goan cinema. Thus in 2014, the organizing body took to the initiative to introduce the Goan Section, which would showcase Goan feature and non-feature films produced during the year.”

The festival which has made Goa its permanent home, is indeed a perfect platform for many a delegates to be introduced to the niche Goan Film industry. The festival authorities are hoping that delegates enjoy this select snapshot of Goan films.
