A detailed, analytical report of the festival and films (IFFI)

From Mohan Siroya

    • SMOOTH  AND DIGNIFIED TAKE OFF with cultural dance fiesta .
    • Usual Mismanagement galore from  Entertainment Society of GOA (ESG)
    • TIICK 20 – A Massive Flop
    • Comparatively below standard selection of films by DFF, except for Indian Panorama.
    • Opening film “Wheat “ was poor but closing film “Broken Embraces” was brilliant and  a saving grace of the fest.
    • Impressive show by Films division with “Moments with Maestros”
    • Grand finale function with reknowned actor Mammooty as the Chief guest , and endearing “Naad Swar” performances by classical maestro percussionists from different parts of India , followed by ace closing film “Broken Embraces”
    • Record no of 6500 delegates and 400 media persons
