International Film Festival of India (IFFI) is the oldest film festival in India. Started by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1952, this film carnival is still going strong in the circuit. This year marks the golden jubilee edition of the festival and thus the organizers have made some grand plans to make it a success.
A few extra film screening categories got added, as a part of the golden jubilee celebrations. One of those categories is 'Special Screening.' Under this section, films with human suffering, conflicts of the modern world and how they affect mankind. Five films are getting screened in this section, in total.
They are, At the Altar of India's Freedom- INA Veterans of Malaysia, At the Altar of India's Freedom / Isang Yun in North and South Korea / Music In The Blood, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, I'm Gonna Tell God Everything and The Tashkent Files.
Some of these are documentaries and some of them are fictional movies. These powerful movies deliver a strong message to the society which is still relevant to the present world. Beginning from the 20th of this month, IFFI 2019 will continue for nine days and finally ends on the 28th of November. Goa will be hosting this gala event.
