FROM just seven movies screened at the first Fiji Film Festival in 2010, the Fiji National University (FNU) in collaboration with Films Fiji and the Indian High Commission will feature more than 200 titles this year.

The festival will showcase movies from 28 countries at eight cinema locations around the country, including Damodar City Centre.

The week-long event from July 18-26 also includes 21 films produced in Fiji.

FNU vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand said they hoped to develop Fijians to not only become involved in making videos but also scriptwriting, acting and mastering other key support areas involved in movie production.

Films are expected to be shown free at all FNU centers in Nadi, Ba, Lautoka, Raiwai, Koronivia, Nasinu, Civic Auditorium in Labasa and Damodar City.

Speaking at a press conference in Suva yesterday, Indian High Commissioner to Fiji Vinod Kumar said 21 films were from Fiji, 45 from India and the rest from other countries.

"We will have the main documentary film festival at the FNU Raiwai campus and the feature films will be viewed at Damodar City," Mr Kumar said.

Films Fiji CEO Florence Swamy said they were happy to support the Fiji Film Festival, adding it showcased the beauty of Fiji's cultures, diversity, locations, people and lifestyle.
