As we celebrate India’s cinematic journey at Cannes 2024, let us also celebrate the filmmakers who dare to dream, the stories that touch our hearts, and the power of cinema to inspire, entertain, and enlighten

India shines brightly on the global cinematic stage as it makes an unprecedented mark at the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival. A record-breaking eight films, each showcasing the rich diversity of Indian storytelling, take center stage in various sections of the prestigious festival. This historic feat not only underscores the burgeoning talent within the Indian film industry but also signals a significant shift in global recognition and appreciation for Indian cinema.

India is gearing up for its significant participation in the 77th Cannes Film Festival, show- casing its vibrant film industry and creative talent. The Bharat Pavilion, designed by NID Ahmedabad, symbolizes this year’s theme of “Create in India” and serves as a hub for industry collaboration and networking. With participation from multiple Indian states, including Goa, Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Jharkhand, and Delhi, India aims to showcase its diverse filming locations and talent pool. Additionally, sessions such as “Abundant Incentives and Seamless Facilitations – Come, Create in India” and interactive discussions at the Bharat Pavilion will spotlight India’s incentives for film pro- duction, international collaboration opportunities, and its emergence as a premier filming destination.

A Grand Show for India

A highlight of India’s participation is the inaugural celebration of “Bharat Parva” at the Cannes Film Festival, a momentous occasion that will bring together luminaries and delegates from across the world. This event aims to showcase India’s rich tapestry of creative talent, providing a platform for interaction between global dignitaries and the Indian film industry. Notably, the official poster and trailer of the 55th India International Film Festival (IFFI), slated for November 2024 in Goa, will be unveiled during Bharat Parva. Additionally, the event will mark the release of the “Save the Date” for the 1st World Audio- Visual & Entertainment Summit (WAVES), to be held alongside IFFI.

At the heart of India’s presence lies the Bharat Pavilion, designed by the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad. Inspired by ‘The Sutradhara,’ this pavilion embodies the theme of “Create in India,” offering a space for industry collaborations, knowledge sharing sessions, and networking opportunities. Organized by the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) in collaboration with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI), the pavilion serves as a hub for fostering partnerships and advancing the Indian film industry on a global scale.
