No Bollywood,No Carnival IFFI at Goa is improving in content also.

Except Shah Rukh Khan the , Chief Guest and a couple of Hindi movies it seems that the IFFI does not include any Bollywood star in the festival. It is a departure from the policies adopted in the other three festivals conducted in Goa in the last three years. In IFFI 2006, which the Bollywood had Hindi blockbusters such as ‘Lage Raho Munnbhai’, ‘Krish’ and ‘Rang De Basanti,’ ‘Bollywood centric ’ Syndrome is vanishing from the festival is good sign . Suparn Sen ,. Federation of India Secretary said that, “We will try and organize the segment next year as this year were informed about it a little too late.” Sen added, “The organisers were not too keen on segregating Indian Cinema into Bollywood and non-Bollywood. Nor were they keen on tagging Bollywood cinema as mainstream.” This is a good sign .let the festival directorate stick on to the latest policy.The DFF also said films to be screened at the festival need subtitles and few Bollywood producers willing to provide them.
