    Lights, Camera, Action: 2nd Nagaland Film Festival To Kickstart From Oct 31

    17 films will be screened during the 2nd Nagaland Film Festival

    The wait is over. The second edition of the two-day Nagaland Film festival will be organised on October 31st at Capital Convention Centre, Kohima by Film Association of Nagaland and sponsored by Information and Public Relations (IPR) Department.  Besides the screening of films, there will be master class, penal discussions and other activities for the upcoming filmmakers.

    “The festival will be first of its kind in Nagaland where filmmakers from all the North-East states will participate,” said Limawati Ao, Director IPR. 

    Limawati added, “We are happy that the famous Bollywood film producer and director, Subhash Ghai will be coming at the same time for another programme and he is expected to attend the festival on November 1st, 2019.  It’ll be a good opportunity for filmmakers to get themselves acquainted with him and his works since he is also a promoter and has institutes that train filmmakers, playback singers and artists.”

    Limawati said the Department is in touch with the states that are established in the film sector and very soon Nagaland will also have a film policy.

    Additional Director IPR, Tokishe Sema said it is just been two years since the IPR was made the nodal department for films in the state and the Department is coming together with the filmmakers to take film making to a higher level.

    He said, “A film is a form of advertisement where we can promote ourselves and we have many talented filmmakers. The Department will try it’s best to encourage them through workshops on film making and technical issues and others.” He urged the filmmakers to get their GST and their association registered.

    According to Festival Director, Yapangnaro Longkumer from FAN, 56 films were received officially for the Festival, 28 films for competition category and 28 films for the non-competition category. 17 films will be screened during the festival. “Lots of young Naga filmmakers are participating and that’s very encouraging.  We want to make the selection impartial so the jury will all be from outside the state,” she added.
