The 47th International Film Festival of India is already on a roll. With about 1000 entries received from more than a 100 countries from across the globe, this year promises to be the best yet!
The festival will feature 3 competitive sections.
1) International Competition: General competitive section for world cinema
2) Centenary Award for Best Debut Feature: Created for debut films of young and aspiring directors

Besides our competitive streak, this year, we will be host to a delegation from the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences. They are a professional organization, most popularly known for hosting their annual Academy Awards, a.k.a. The Oscars, besides their immense contribution to the film industry. The delegation will be conducting Masterclasses and Workshops as well.
The IFFI 2016 will also feature a special section of films made on Masters of Cinema.
Last year, in the 2015 edition, the festival opening and closing ceremonies were hosted at the ‘Shyama Prasad Mukherjee‘ stadium, situated in Taleigao, which was constructed as part of the infrastructure raised to host Lusofonia Games in January 2014. Around 7000 delegates had registered too.
