Open Forum at International Film Festival of India to begin in Goa

The Open Forum, which has been an integral part of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) for the past 30 years, will begin today at Panaji in Goa.

The Open Forum provides a platform to filmmakers, actors, jury members, senior government officials, and organisers of film festivals from India and abroad to exchange their views in a free and frank manner. The topic for today’s Open Forum is the role of film festivals in promoting film culture and the need for spreading film festivals across the country.

The Speakers include veteran filmmaker Rahul Rawail, IFFI Head Chaitanya Prasad, Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) Vice Chairman Rajendra Talak, OSD to IFFI Senthil Rajan and Karnataka Chalchitra Academy Chairman N Chandrasekhar.

This year’s Open Forum has been organised by the Federation of Film Societies of India in collaboration with Directorate of Film Festivals and ESG. The Open Forum was introduced at the Thiruvananthapuram Filmotsav in 1988.
