THE Fiji Film Festival 2013 which will take place this month will feature about 200 films, including local films vying for the Kula Film Awards.
And a total of 238 films from 28 countries such as Italy, Sri Lanka, Algeria and Romania would be on show at the festival which would run from September 13 to 21.
Film Fiji CEO Florence Swamy applauded the Indian High Commission and FNU for organising the event.
"As the agency responsible for promoting and developing the film industry in Fiji, we welcome this event which will draw the attention to the growth of the industry in Fiji," she said.
"Not only will our filming infrastructure be highlighted, but Fiji as a destination will be promoted to many new audiences."
Among the films being showcased will be local films.
"This is a great plus as it's taking our films to different centres in Fiji for others to appreciate and realise the wealth of talent that is available among our own young film-makers," Ms Swamy said.
The Kula Film Awards will take place on September 20 and 21.
Director of Unistudio Ravi Malik said the films would be showcased at Village 6 Cinemas, various FNU campuses and Elite Cinema in Labasa.
Mr Malik said entry to all films would be free.
