The 51st International Film Festival of India (IFFI) is set to take place in Goa from January 16-24, 2021. The latest edition will screen a total of 224 films under different sections. With Bollywood stars like Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Ashutosh Gowariker, Dia Mirza, Rakeysh Mehra, Subhash Ghai, Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor already supporting and promoting the festival on social media, the event organisers are expecting a good participation this year.

Chaitanya Prasad, IFFI Director, shared that upon postponement of the festival, the organising committee fixed a new date and then worked backwards towards the deadline. He further stated that despite the festival having a hybrid format this year, the participation has been noteworthy.

“There are seven screening theatres, 28 films a day, so roughly about 224 films in total. For the international section, we received more than 600 films. When we sent out the registration, we sought virtual-physical, physical-virtual and only virtual. We received more than 100 virtual profiles of films. The response was overwhelming. When we started to eliminate, we didn’t know what to eliminate. The cinema presentation is going to be mind-blowing,” Prasad said.
