Semana da Cultura Indo-Portuguesa celebrations commence with Portuguese Film Festival

Semana da Cultura Indo-Portuguesa celebrations commence with Portuguese Film Festival

Panaji, Sep 23 (UNI) The ninth edition of Semana da Cultura Indo-Portuguesa’s cultural celebrations began on Friday evening with a three-day Portuguese Film Festival at Maquinez Palace here. In this film festival, six critically-acclaimed films will be screened over three days. The festival opened with the Portuguese film, 'Comboio Noturno para Lisboa' (Night train to Lisbon), by Bille August amidst a gathering of movie buffs. The film is based on a professor's thrilling adventure to rediscover himself. Speaking on the occasion, Consul General of Portugal in Goa, Dr Francisco Duarte Azevedo said, "Two words come to my mind at this moment -- heritage and knowledge. Heritage binds us to our roots, our culture, family, nation and identities. Knowledge is that tool available at our disposal to empower and plan for the future. This wonderful committee put together this simple yet effective event nine years ago. And I'm very proud to be here today among you all. The past is past. We live in the present and need to look towards the future. Often times our lives are changed by the actions of others. Let's think about the future. About that bilateral factor common to Portugal and India. This event is a seed to plant a bright future ahead. Think about it." Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) vice-chairman Rajendra Talak said, "One doesn’t need to know the language to understand a film. It’s about transferring a feeling and emotion to the audiences. Film makers in Goa and Portugal face similar issues. Goa government has taken the initiative to promote Goan films and thanks to that Goan films are making a mark and winning awards. I have always wanted to make a film on football. It’s a topic close to the heart of every Goan. I assure the support of ESG to make this film festival an annual event." More UNI AKM SS SW SHK 1657
