I’m really happy to see the crowd gathered here to explore the world of movies. It would be great if people showed the same enthusiasm in welcoming movies screened after the festival days.
My festival memories are related to long queue of elderly bearded people in loose kurthas, but now I can see a lot of youngsters as audience as well as film professionals. Film festivals are a venue of togetherness.
I always look forward at the experience of coming to IFFK because the audience here is extremely mature, very receptive and is much more than just film buffs
