The second week of the Fiji National University’s (FNU) Fiji Film Festival has seen the screening of locally produced films, with plans to enter the films in other international film festivals.
Speaking in Lautoka on Saturday evening, FNU vice chancellor Ganesh Chand said the large number of films entered in their fourth festival rivaled that of the Indian Film Festival and was an occasion to share the creative flare of the local industry.
“It is also an occasion for a union and reunion of stimulating discussions, to share ideas and explore possibilities for making new films. It is a feast for the soul and a stimulus of the mind. The festival has constantly endeavoured to bring all that is impossible to make possible,” he said.
With around 100 films from Fiji, Asia and Europe entered in the festival, Mr Chand said the country’s film business was a new concept and the festival would always promote films made by Fijian film makers.
“We will ensure that these films entered in the Fiji Film Festival will be entered in other film festivals as well so that people come to know of Fiji in international cinematics,” he said.
The festival ends this Wednesday.
