GOA: Invitations for the screening of international films for the 51st edition of the Iffi to be held from November 20, are now open. This year, the films at the international film festival are likely to receive a digital platform owing to Covid-19 situation.
“The 51st Iffi being a hybrid film festival due to Covid-19 would screen films on official digital platform along with the theatrical screenings, subject to then prevailing conditions,” a statement by Iffi reads. As film screening facilities remain closed across the country due to the pandemic, doubts over hosting the festival in Goa were strong. This was until chief minister Pramod Sawant earlier this month saying the 2020 edition of Iffi will take place as scheduled.
