Performing artist Suhasini has asked the Govt. of Tamil Nadu to begin giving money related help to the coordinators of the yearly Chennai International Film Festival from one year from now onwards.
The fifteenth Chennai International Film Festival initiated in Chennai on Thursday (fourteenth December) with performer Aravind Swamy introducing the Festival. Suhasini, one of the dynamic coordinators of the Festival, conveyed a touching discourse.
“We have been finding the going intense because of absence of monetary help with sorting out such Film Festivals. Truth be told, the issue has turned into a standard thing every year for as far back as 15 years. In whatever is left of the nation, all the State Governments have been giving significant money related help to those arranging such Film Festivals. Karnataka, specifically, takes the cake by giving Rs.10 crores.
“We sincerely trust that the Govt. of Tamil Nadu would stick to this same pattern and give no less than half of the aggregate cost of arranging the Festival. In the event that it happens, we would influence it to look as great as some other Film Festival in any piece of the globe,” Suhasini finished up.
The Film Festival, sorted out mutually by NFDC and Indo-Cine Appreciation Foundation, is screening 150 movies under six classes. Two movies featuring the late MGR would likewise be screened other than 22 other Tamil movies. Celebration finishes up on 21st December.
