NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 08, 2020
In a new interview with C.M. Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld, Artistic Director of the Mumbai Film Festival, Smriti Kiran, talks about the future of film and filmmaking in her country. The Festival and the Indian Film Industry were significantly hit not only by the Coronavirus pandemic but additionally by Cyclone Amphan. “Everything has come to a grinding halt,” Kiran tells C.M. Rubin, and adds that India is “in the midst of the biggest humanitarian crisis the country has witnessed.”
While the bricks and mortar nature of the Mumbai Film Festival is still important, Kiran predicts the Festival will have to make changes to remain vibrant in the future, given the post-pandemic challenges of creating large face-to-face events. “We will have to hone and sharpen our creating opportunities skills: mentoring, discovering, knowledge sharing, film education, co-productions and distribution,” she notes. “Nobody can afford to be technologically challenged anymore. Tech has been and continues to be our saviour right now.”
