Five-day international documentary films festival opens in Goa

An international films festival for documentary, short and animation films, jointly organised by the films division of the I&B Ministry, Goa Directorate of Information and Publicity, and the Goa Kala Academy opened in Panaji on April 28.

The five-day non-competitive film festival is showcasing 75 films from 26 countries, including 28 award-winning films. These include 19 award-winning films of Mumbai International Film Festival and nine-award winning animation films, besides 22 best films made by the Films Division.

About two dozen films produced by the Goan filmmakers in Konkani, Marathi and other local languages also figure in the list of films selected for screening. These include a MIIF 2004 award-winning film by Goan filmmaker Laxman Shetgarkar. The films selected for screening range from durations of one-and-a-half minutes, to one-and-a-quarter hours.

The festival opened with Oscar-nominated Indian film ‘The Little Terrorist’ directed by Ashvin Kumar and the Bulgarian film ‘Whose is this Song’ by Adela Peeva. During the inaugural ceremony, VK Naik, a veteran Goan filmmaker and a close associate of legendary filmmaker V Shantaram was honoured, along with Les Menezes.
