CANNES: You have got to hand it to the guys from Goa. The entire team of the international film festival has winged it down to Cannes to pick up the best practices from Cannes. They have been talking to all and sundry trying to find out how they can develop Goa along the lines of the French Riviera resort, which plays host to several events throughout the year.
Entertainment Society of Goa head Anju Timblo said, “We will stop short of nothing less than making the Goa International Film Festival amongst the most prized destination for filmmakers the world over.”
Among those who have come in include the Goa festival director Sahay, chief secretary J.P. Singh, commissioner and secretary tourism Ramesh Negi.
Go Goa as they say.
