The High Commissioner of India to Canada Vikas Swarup inaugurated the India Pavilion at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival 2019 earlier today. The inauguration of India Pavilion at TIFF will provide a platform to showcase Indian Cinema in the overseas market and facilitate new business opportunities. Speaking on the occasion, Mr Swarup said Indian movies have created a new benchmark in film making globally. He said, every Film Festival today acknowledges the enormous potential of India’s soft power.
He further said, TIFF also provides the ideal platform for the global outreach of the 50th International Film Festival of India 2019. Around 60 eminent personalities from the sector, including Geoff McNaughton, Hannah Fisher and Roger Nair, participated in the inauguration ceremony of the India pavilion. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, in collaboration with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), is participating in the ‘Toronto International Film Festival’, which will run from September 5-15.
