Earlier its two editions were held in New Delhi. “We have started the fest 2021 to promote and support the development of the cinema around the world. We got a huge response not only from India but also abroad, especially for youth.”

Founder MD and festival director Praina Agrawal said films will be screened and awards will be given at the function. The nominations for this have begun and the process will continue till December.

“Many big film personalities like Poonam Dhillon, Bhagyashree and others are expected to take part in the festival. Most probably the event may be held in Ravindra Bhawan but it is not fixed,” she added.
