Allu Sirish's Report On Cannes To TFPC
Cannes Film Festival, is an annual film festival held in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including documentaries from all over the world. Many celebrities from different film industries in different countries make their presence at the event. Sirish attended the event recently and felt that Telugu cinema needs more recognition at the festival.
"India Pavilion, Cannes: 1) At a panel discussion on regional cinema, moderated by @baradwajrangan. 2) Interacting with I&B Ministry officials & various industry stakeholders on how to make Indian content that appeals to the global audience. @ficci_india. The fashion & glamour at Cannes overpowers the millions worth of biz deals signed there.
Marathi, Malayali & Assamese films to had market screenings but none from the largest regional industry: Telugu. I&B Min officials complain that Tollywood fraternity isn't very participative. But I spoke to many people in our industry. They want to be present at these forums but clueless. From all my visits & interactions I'll submit a report to our apex body: TFPC. Hope we have better representation at such forums henceforth." Sirish tweeted.
