The 49th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) will end on Wednesday in Goa. 

The closing ceremony will be held at the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium in Taleigaon, near Panaji in the evening. 

The closing film is Sealed Lips from Germany, while the opening film was The Aspern Papers. 222 movies from 67 countries were screened at the nine-day event. Master writer Salim Khan will be honoured with the IFFI special award for his lifetime contribution to cinema at the closing ceremony. 

26 feature films and 21 non-feature films were screened in the Indian Panorama section. 

While Israel was the focus country, Jharkhand was the focus state this year. This is for the first time that any state was made focus state at IFFI.

Veteran Israeli filmmaker Dan Wolman was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the opening ceremony. Another new section at IFFI this year was the screening of six Indian sports biopics as an extension of the Khelo India initiative. In the International competition section, 15 movies were screened, out of which 3 were Indian.

At Masterclasses and In-Conversations, a host of film personalities interacted with delegates. They include Prasoon Joshi, Anil Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, Jahnvi Kapoor, David Dhawan, Varun Dhawan and Shaji Karun. Two movies, Sholay and Hichki, were also screened at this year’s IFFI as part of a special package for visually impaired persons. 

12 films including two from India have been nominated for this year’s ICFT UNESCO Gandhi Medal. The award will be presented at the closing ceremony of IFFI.
