The cocktails and dinner party organized by The Film & TV Producers Guild in honor of delegates at IFFI, Goa was a spectacular success. The Guild party was sponsored this year by one of our members M/s Time Broadband Services Ltd. All concerned VIPs ranging from the Chief Minister of Goa to top notch film personalities and foreign delegates made it a point to attend the soiree.
Held at the picturesque Sunset Lawns of Hotel Cidade De Goa, this was an event that truly impressed one and everyone with its modus operandi of blending the festival mood with elegance, glamour and meticulous organisation. The party began with myopic speeches and presentations from Amit Dev (Time Broadband Services Ltd.), Guild Council of Management member Ravi Gupta, etc. Shri Ramesh Tekwani donned the position of host on this occasion and kept the ensemble of more than 325 persons on their toes with his witty comments. The atmosphere was enchanting and marked by lively conversations tinged with moments of deja vu. Inspite of the fact that this was yet another bash during IFFI, the ensemble of people were bustling with nonchalant enthusiasm laced with a hint of tranquility.
The guest list comprised a virtual who’s who amongst those present in Goa on that day – The Chief Minister of Goa Shri Digambar Kamat, the Chief Secretary of Goa J P Singh, I & B Secy Asha Swarup, Jt Sec (Films), I & B Ministry V B Pyarelal, Festival Director Neelam Kapur, Guild members Sudhir Mishra, Sujata Dev, Deepak Balraj Vij, Monjoy Mukherjee, eminent film and theatre personalities Khushboo, Gerson Da’ Cunha amongst others. Members of the festival jury, important officials from DFF (Directorate of Film Festivals), ESG (Entertainment Society of Goa) graced the occasion with their inimitable presence. The Guild team lead by its Secretary General Shri Supran Sen, Asst Secretary General Shri Anindya Dasgupta were also present to supervise matters.
