The India Pavilion at Cannes Film Festival 2019 was inaugurated by Information and Broadcasting Secretary Amit Khare today. A special IFFI poster marking its Golden Jubilee Edition was also released, along with a comprehensive Film Guide to showcase the importance of the film ecosystem and government incentives to shoot in India.
In his address, Mr Khare highlighted emerging trends in the Media and Entertainment Industry in India. The India Pavilion has been set up to showcase Indian cinema across linguistic, cultural and regional diversity, with the aim of forging international partnerships in distribution, production, filming in India, development, technology, promoting film sales and syndication.
It will serve as a platform for the Indian Delegates to meet International Delegates attending the Festival to promote networking with other countries and organizations.
