51st IFFI to be held in Goa from Nov 20

Fifty first International Film Festival of India IFFI will be held in Goa, from November 20th to 28th. This film festival being a hybrid film festival due to Covid 19, would screen films on official digital platform along with the theatrical screenings.

Vice-chairman of the Entertainment Society of Goa, Subhash Faldesai informed that in a virtual meeting held last week, the IFFI steering committee decided to hold the festival in compliance with the Central government’s SOP. Mr Faldesai added that another meeting would be held shortly. The segments that could be screened virtually and those which can be shown at auditoriums in Goa will be decided in this meeting. Phaldesai added that the possibility of giving online access to delegates for films rather than inviting them to the venue is worked out and it is likely to be finalised in the next meeting.

In the meanwhile, the invitations for the screening of international films for the fifty first edition of IFFI are already open.
