    Reel Magic: 2nd Nagaland Film Festival Gets Underway

    In this festival, 28 films have entered the competition and another 28 in the non-competition category

    The two-day 2nd Nagaland Film Festival got underway at Capital Convention Centre, Kohima on October 31st, 2019. The two-day event is being organised by the Department of Information & Public Relations (DIPR), Government of Nagaland, and Film Association of Nagaland (FAN). 

    Gracing the inaugural function, Advisor, Toshi Wungtung said film industry will help the Northeast states to connect with the mainland as well as the outside world. “The Information and Public Relations (IPR) Department will do its best to showcase ourselves in a better way in the days to come,” he said.

    Vikramjit Roy, Head- FFO, NFDC, Ministry of I&B Government of India assured that the Ministry will work with Nagaland to take film industry forward. On the huge impact of film’s contribution to revenue and employment generation, Roy felt that Nagaland must have a film cell and film policy.

    President FAN, Kivini Shohe said that the main objective of FAN is to help the filmmakers grow skillfully and bring the consciousness of cinema among the people. “Most of us filmmakers in Nagaland are into making shorts, documentaries, fiction, music videos and some of us are very popular on YouTube. Usually, our members are dependent on wedding videos, event coverage, and government departmental films to sustain ourselves. But it’s only for the love for this medium that we persist,” she said.

    She added, “With the advent of digital filmmaking we are witnessing democratization of cinema. The easy availability of low-cost film making gadgets and limited budget has enabled talented youngsters to experiment with interesting subjects in recent years.”

    In this festival, 28 films have entered the competition and another 28 in the non-competition category. Apart from screening films from all the Northeastern states, the festival featured master class, panel discussion and awards.

    On day one, the festival screened Aamis (Fiction)- Assam, Under the Longpfurr Sky (Documentary)- Nagaland, Chori (Documentary), Last Wish (Fiction)- Mizoram, Ma’ama (Fiction)- Meghalaya, 40 Years Through The Lenses (Documentary) – Arunachal Pradesh, Kwtham Kothoma (Fiction)- Tripura and Xopunor Xety (Fiction)- Assam will be screened.
