Ten Films and FICTS to organise ‘Sports, Movies & TV’ fest in India

Ten Films, India’s leading short film making company, along with Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs (FICTS) has announced the launch of ‘Sports, Movies and TV’ in Mumbai. The event, slated for March 2006, is significant in recognising India’s contribution to international cinema and sports.

‘Sport Movies & TV’ is one of the most popular festivals of cinema and TV worldwide, with sports as its theme. Over seven countries have ‘International Challenge’ of ‘Sport Movies & TV’, which has a grand finale in Milan in October every year.

Speaking on the importance of the event, Ritesh Sinha, Director, Ten Films, said, “We at Ten Films have always endeavoured to promote Indian cinema at various international platforms and the ‘Sport Movies & TV’ is yet another step in this direction.”

Ten Films is gaining increasing importance for its initiatives and its 60-second film ‘War or Peace’ brought great pride when it was projected at Cannes. One of its other initiatives, ‘India Shorts’ is India’s only film exchange, which enables Indian short filmmakers to get access to premier film festivals and film acquisition companies across the globe.

As part of the event, Amit Roy, the renowned cinematographer of the Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan-starrer ‘Sarkar’, was felicitated with a silver medallion on behalf of the Italian government for his excellent work in the film.
