We take great pleasure in re-introducing the Nashik International Film Festival as tribute to the vision of legendary Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian Cinema, originating in Nashik. The festival is in its 6th edition this year features Short Films, Documentaries & Animated Films. This is a heritage festival, as the very first Indian film was visualised and produced in Nashik by Dadasaheb Phalke that acted as the trigger for the genesis of the Indian film industry - a giant in the global entertainment map today! The Festival is competitive in nature and features the Golden Camera Awards & “The Dadasaheb Phalke Janmabhoomi Puraskar”. It is sponsored and endorsed by the Government of Maharashtra – Ministry of Cultural Affairs, The Films Division, Film Archives of India and Nashik Mahanagar Palika. It is hosted by the Metro Foundation of India & the Kalavaibhav Sanstha, Nashik.
We are at the onset of the centenary year and as envisioned by Dadasaheb Phalke 100 years ago, the industry has grown to be a formidable influence in the collective psyche of people around the world! We plan to involve as many constituents of the Indian Film Industry as we can to make it an all-inclusive celebration. The last 4 editions have been a learning curve for the festival in terms of positioning and industry involvement. We have managed to generate substantial interest in the festival amongst Nashik audiences and the Film Industry. The fact that we have graduated to the 6th edition, reflects the continuity and overall growth of the NIFF. The 6th edition of the festival will be hosted from the 20th to 23rd Mar 2014 in Nashik. This year in NIFF 2014 we like to focus on the current issue of “L.G.B.T.” community through “Queers FILMS Section” and support them.
