Cine Con­nec­tion

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

Colombo hosted the SAARC Film Fes­ti­val for the fourth con­sec­u­tive year. The fes­ti­val lasted for 5 days and in­cluded screen­ing of films from SAARC mem­ber coun­tries and a work­shop with well-known di­rec­tors. The SAARC Film Fes­ti­val marks an event unique to the re­gion, as it is an in­ter­ac­tive fo­rum for the people of SAARC coun­tries where they can sa­vor each other’s cul­ture through the medium of cin­ema. It has also been no­ticed that the films screened dur­ing the fes­ti­val are not merely a tool of en­ter­tain­ment, but rather one of cul­tural aware­ness as well as some­thing that would con­vey an in­her­ent mes­sage indige­nous to a par­tic­u­lar mem­ber coun­try.
