The third day of the Goa Environmental Film Festival: The inaugural Goa Environmental Film Festival (GEFF), which is presently taking place at the Maquinez Palace in Panjim, concludes today, Monday, June 5, 2023.
The festival features films from several countries, including Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Finland, Ireland, Oman, Portugal, Russia, and Spain.
The festival has been held in conjunction with the G20 meetings held in Goa, but it will become an annual event beginning in 2016.
This film festival will feature films from all around the world, including Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Finland, Ireland, Oman, Portugal, Russia, Spain, and the rest of Europe. He suggested the student view these films because they cover a wide range of topics related to environmental protection. This is why I’m encouraging the student body and the broader public to check out the films at the festival, he explained.
When asked why the film festival was chosen to bring the people of Goa together, Sanjit Rodrigues explained, “As we are working with such fervour towards nine meetings of G20 in Goa, we thought that there should be a connection with the local population here.” Film, being a universally accessible medium, is ideal for raising this kind of consciousness among the general public. At the same time, the local Goan viewpoint has been incorporated into this film festival. It will provide us insight into how well we do in this setting. I’m delighted with the enthusiastic reception to this festival.
