Goa, considered as India’s favourite tourist destination, has carved itself a niche in Indian cinema, with some of the most iconic films being shot here. However, when it comes to filmmaking in Goa, Konkani Cinema isn’t far behind.
Over the years, the Konkani film industry flourished, producing some of the most prolific directors and films India has ever seen. Laxmikant Shetgaonkar’s Paltadcho Munis was the first Konkani film that brought Goan Cinema into international limelight.
Last year IFFI 2015 showcased some of the most iconic Konkani films such as Nacho-ia-Kumpasar, Home Sweet Home, Prem at First Sight and Goa’s first Konkani sci-fi film, Hanv Tum Tum Hanv.
In the 47th edition, IFFI is providing a platform for Goan Filmmakers to showcase their talent in a special section dedicated to Konkani/Marathi feature and Non feature Films, organised by the Entertainment Society of Goa.
The films should only be in Konkani & Marathi Language for the Feature Film Category and in Konkani, Marathi, English and Hindi in the Non feature Film Category being produced by Goan producers only. The Films should have been certified by the Central Board of Film Certification between 1 st November 2015 to 30th October 2016. For further details read the rules and regulations.
