In fact, this year, at Cannes, the India Pavilion will focus on positioning India as the ‘Content Hub Of The World’
Kashmir and Varanasi to Karnataka: Foreign filmmakers shoot across the length and breadth of India
Over the last few years, the I&B Ministry’s efforts to make film shooting an easier and more seamless experience for foreign filmmakers seems to have paid off, with India becoming an increasingly popular shooting destination with foreign filmmakers. Even as the Film Facilitation Office (FFO) – which comes under the ministry – collaborates with states and central agencies to ensure timely permissions for film shoots of foreign projects – this year, at Cannes, the India Pavilion will focus on positioning India as the ‘Content Hub Of The World’ and establishing international partnerships in film shooting, distribution, co-production, and more.
As a result, while the pandemic may have put a temporary pause on foreign shoots, post reopening, several series and movies from across the world are lined up for shoot in India in the coming months. In addition to this, post-July, over ten Hollywood and other foreign projects will be shot in India.
