Nepal Culture and FilmCentre (NCFC)has decided to organize the 2nd Nepal Cultural International Film Festival (NCIFF) in Toronto, Canada on 20-22 December 2019. It is an annual festival that started in 2018.The information about organizing 2nd Nepal Cultural International Film Festival (NCIFF) 2019 was released during this Press Conference held at Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) in Bhrikutimandap, Kathmandu.
The Government of Nepal has declared the year 2020 as “Visit Nepal 2020” with the goal of attracting international tourists to the country. The Film Festival being held in Canada marries perfectly with the vision of the government and will have a signiëcant contribution in creating awareness about Nepal and Nepalese Culture in Canada. This event also helps attract producers, directors and cinematographers to the beautiful landscape of Nepal which in the long run will help establish Nepal as a popular Shooting Destination for international film makers and hence our motto ‘Cine-tourism for Culture’ will be justified. The event will also help establish and build international relations via cultural ex-change.
Apart from this, the festival has some of the most famous, award-winning filmmakers from around the world screening their films at the festival. These movies are the benchmark for what a good film should be – entertaining, clean, hugely inspiring and packed with moral values!
The estimated audience during the screenings is over 2,000 in 5days.
