The 54th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), one of Asia’s most prestigious film festivals, begins its cinematic journey in the beautiful coast of Goa.
The feature and non-feature films being screened at IFFI under the Indian Panorama will provide an immersive experience that will immerse film lovers into the world of the unique narrative style and cultural richness of Indian cinema.
‘Andro Dreams’, a documentary directed by Mina Longjam, will be the opening film in the non-feature section. Set in a rural village in Manipur, the documentary tells the story of an old woman, Laibi, and her three-decade-old girls football club, which grapples with economic challenges, patriarchy and stereotypes in an ancient village in Northeast India.
Indian Panorama was started in 1978 at IFFI to promote the rich culture and heritage of India as well as Indian films with the help of cinematic art. Since its inception, Indian Panorama has been completely dedicated to showcasing the best Indian films of the year.
