The prestigious film festival has made Goa its permanent home

With Goa becoming the permanent venue of the annually held International Film Festival of India (IFFI), the number of creative people from all over the world coming to its shores has only grown by leaps and bounds.

IFFI has been steadily erasing boundaries within the worlds of art and cinema offering a platform to cinephiles and creators across the globe to showcase their work and talent; engage with film cultures of various nations and promote understanding of the social and cultural ethos of world cinema. Conducted jointly by the Directorate of Film Festivals and the State Government of Goa, the festival has been previously held in various cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai before Goa became the permanent venue in 2014. The festival continues to work towards the discovery, support, and promotion of films across genres, cultures, and languages with a vision of connecting Indian cinema to the world and also bringing world cinema to India.

Come November, the annual time for IFFI, a host of celebrities arrive in Goa, rivaling the glamour and excitement of other prestigious film festivals held around the world.
