After months of planning for an impressive festival line-up, the team at Awam ka Cinema in conjunction with Eon Films that organises the Ayodhya Film Festival announced this morning that the event slated to happen from October 13-14, 2023 has been shifted to December 2023. This call has been taken in view of the Navratri celebrations and the forthcoming Dussehra which culminates in a grand festival in Ayodhya. The new dates for the 17th edition of the annual event will soon be announced, organisers have confirmed.
With the new date for the festival announced, the organisers have extended accepting last moment entries till 26th November which might induce film makers to send in their films. Festival Director Dr. Shah Alam Rana says, “Except for the date change, everything remains the same as planned. We have sorted out logistics and built support from locals, who are already overwhelmed with the film festival taking place in their backyard.”
"As Awam ka Cinema & Eon Films gears up to host yet another successful edition of Ayodhya Film Festival, we are focused on creating a vibrant ambience for film makers and audience to further enhance Ayodhya’s position as a leading film making and tourism destination (and not just a holy town) that offers unforgettable experiences," said Festival Chairperson and Jury Prof. Dr. Mohan Das. “This year’s selection spans a range of genres; from social issues to psychodrama and thriller, to provocative period piece and taut social commentary to award winning films across the globe,” he added.
The 17th Ayodhya Film Festival in partnership with other global film festivals will take place in December 2023. The full festival programme, screening schedules and nominations will be announced on 27th November, 2023.
