"MANY of us do not know that there are abundance of talents in the country and to to harness that talent, we need to develop an industry that can look into that," says FNU vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand.

He made the comment at the launch of the sixth Fiji Film Festival at the Damodar City complex on Friday night.

Dr Chand said these hidden talents needed to be exploited and exposed and events like this festival would assist in doing this.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, who launched the festival, said there were people who opposed the advancement of Fiji to a fusion of culture, language and literature.

He also said the fusion of art, film and literature was the sign of the maturity of any country and in particular Fiji.

The Fiji Film Festival will end on Thursday.
