Directorate of Film Festivals

Directorate of Film Festivals

The Directorate of Film Festivals in India is an organization that initiates and presents the most prestigious film ceremonies in India. These are the International Film Festival of India, the National Film Awards and the Indian Panorama. Although the Directorate helps appoint members of the jury panels each year, it has no input on which films are selected for consideration and which films ultimately win awards at the various functions it initiates.

The Directorate set up by Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Govt. of India,[1] to organize national and international film festivals in India.

It was set up by the Government of India in 1973, and works as part of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.[1]

Overview

The Directorate facilitates the participation of India in festivals abroad, and arranges for foreign film programmes to be held in the country.
