Since 1952, India has hosted 37 International Film Festivals, both competitive and non-competitive. These festivals became annual events from 1975 onwards. The next festival, which includes a competition for feature films by Asian/African/Latin American Directors, will be held in Goa and is the 41th edition.
The Festival is being organised by the Directorate of Film Festivals, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India in collaboration with the State Government of Goa and the Indian Film Industry. The Festival is recognised by the International Federation of Film Producers’ Associations (FIAPF).
The Festival aims at providing a common platform for the cinematographies of the world to project the excellence of the film art; contributing to the understanding and appreciation of film cultures of different nations in the context of their social and cultural ethos; and promoting friendship and co- operation among peoples of the world.
Films entered in the Competition Section must fulfill the following conditions:
Films must be feature films.
Except for films produced in India, the film should not have been shown in India. Selection of Indian films for the competition will be done from the entries of Indian Panorama feature films.
The film must be made by directors of Asian, African and Latin American descent and produced in an Asian or African or Latin American country. In the case of co-productions, at least one of the producers/production companies must be from an Asian or African or Latin American country and the entry form for the competition should be submitted by the Asian or African or Latin American co-producer, who should have the right to sanction the participation of the film in competition in the Festival.
Entrants must agree that if their film/films win any of the Golden and/or Silver Peacock Awards, all screenings thereafter will acknowledge the Award(s) on the film itself.
Entries will be subject to preview by a committee constituted by this Festival Directorate. A film which is not accepted for the Competition Section can be shown in the Cinema of the World Section with the specific consent of the entrant.
