Goa to adorn Festive Cheer to Welcome IFFI 53 delegates

Art installations, Open Air Screenings and More to be a part of IFFI 53 Extravaganza

Ever since the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) found a home for itself in Goa, the state has welcomed the festival and its participants with open arms. Such is the spirit and hospitality of the state, that there are multiple exciting events and attractions lined up during each edition of the festival,  leaving delegates itching to come back again. Apart from the festival screenings, masterclasses and discussions here are some of the activities waiting to be explored, experienced and enjoyed at the 53rd edition of IFFI:

Festival Mile

The ‘road to victory’ may be paved with obstacles, but the ‘road’ to IFFI will be paved with festivities. The Festival mile, or the sidewalk starting from Kala Academy in Panaji to the premises of the Entertainment Society of Goa will be decorated with fascinating art installations. Installations that  invite admiration and inspire contemplation will seek to enchant both festival delegates and passers-by alike. Such will be the amount of admiring and contemplating that numerous food stalls in the Festival Mile are certain to be packed with tourists, local residents and festival delegates wanting to load up on food and recharge their energies.

Open Air Screenings

For tourists and local residents who have not registered as delegates for the festival, IFFI 53 has decided to issue a challenge. By free screening of some of the mesmerizing content that IFFI delegates enjoy, IFFI 53 challenges those who have not registered to taste the celebration of cinema and see whether they can choose to not join the delegates and register for the next edition!  The doors to great cinema will be thrown open for free at Joggers Park in Altinho, Ravindra Bhavan in Margao and Miramar Beach.

Entertainment Zone

Though the screenings, discussions and master classes themselves promise plenty of entertainment, to explore limits of fun and recreation further, Entertainment Zones will be set up at Bhagwan Mahavir Children’s Park and the Art Park. These entertainment zones will be open to delegates and non-delegates alike during the festival period. Both locations will feature live performances, art installations and of course, food stalls.
