“Interactions within this mini-world congregating at Goa will facilitate deeper understanding and new learnings in the world of art”:Narendra Modi

Newdelhi:18/11/22:The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi has said that IFFI, the International Film Festival of India, promotes an invigorating synergy between delegates from different nations and societies, united by cinema. Describing IFFI as the biggest film festival of India, the Prime Minister expressed confidence that “the interactions within this mini-world congregating at Goa will facilitate deeper understanding and new learnings in the world of art”.

In his message, the Prime Minister observes that IFFI and Indian cinema have carved out a niche for themselves on the global stage. “Films in different Indian languages are reaching out to a larger international audience and are being increasingly appreciated across the world.”

The Prime Minister has also shared his thoughts on the role of cinema in both reflecting as well as shaping social dynamics. “For over a century now, cinema has captured the imagination of people the world over. Cinema reflects the social dynamics of our times as well as shapes it.”

The Prime Minister speaks also about the narrative power of films in bringing about social transformation and the rich history and art of storytelling in Indian languages. “Films have a unique ability to transcend barriers and establish an emotional connect with the audience. Movies entertain, educate or even inspire people through their powerful storytelling. Their efficacy in becoming a vehicle of social transformation is truly unparalleled. India is blessed with a rich and diverse culture, an amalgamation of tradition with the modern. The history and art of storytelling in various Indian languages ranging from prose, poetry, music, dance, plays, dramas to cinema, enables us to celebrate our vibrant socio-cultural landscape.”

The Prime Minister states that Goa is the perfect venue for the festival and that it will inspire festival delegates to come up with new ideas to enable cinema to reach an ever-expanding audience. “With its beautiful nature and vibrant culture, Goa provides the perfect backdrop to host the IFFI.
