The theme of this year’s pavilion is “India, the content hub of the world”. It will present Indian cinema through the linguistic, cultural and regional diversities of the country.
Along with these, it will also serve as a networking platform for delegates from across the global community, aiming to establish international partnerships in filming, distribution, production, script development, technology, sales promotion films and syndication.
This year, India will be the official “Country of Honour” for the Marche du Film, organized alongside the 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, in France.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his delight at India’s participation as a “country of honour” at the Cannes Film Festival and noted that India’s participation comes during the momentous meeting to celebrate the 75 years of India’s independence, the 75th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival and 75 years of diplomatic relations between India and France.
Underscoring India’s commitment to improving the ease of doing business in the film sector, Prime Minister Modi said that from facilitating international film co-production to ensuring a one-stop licensing mechanism for permissions to film across the country, India offers seamless opportunities for filmmakers around the world. .
