Madhya Pradesh and especially Bhopal's own film festival - The Lakecity International Film Festival has officially released its android app for bringing the filmmakers and the discerning audiences on an engaging digital content platform and to keep them abreast of the latest news and happenings of and about the festival. The free-to-download app is available on as well can also be downloaded by scanning the QR Code given here and on the website.

Speaking on the launch, Festival Coordinator Mahua Mazumdar says, ““It was time for a change and be in tune with the moving times. We needed something dynamic and attractive to connect to our audiences and film makers and create an interactive communication platform. Nothing can get better than this app to keep them abreast of the latest information even while on the move.”

The app will be a trendsetter as it will bring all the topical information and news items on whats happening in and around the festival, the entries, the selection, the schedule, the inauguration and the events centering on to finally the awards and the ceremony right into your mobiles and tablets. Created by Bangalore based Pranshu Kulshreshtha, this app meets all requirements and is very easy to manoeuvre and use. And it also takes less time to navigate as compared to browsing on a site. But the biggest advantage of this application is that it comes free.

It does more justice to our coverage skills and talents, and we are now ready for the new communication challenges ahead!
