62nd  National Film Awards presented by the President of India at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on 3rd May, 2015.

The President, Shri Pranab Mukherjee today conferred National film awards for the year 2014 in various categories at the 62nd National Film Awards Function held at Vigyan Bhawan here. Minister for Finance, Corporate Affairs, and Information & Broadcasting, Shri Arun Jaitley and MoS I&B Col. Rajyavardhan Rathore were also present on the occasion. In his address, the President, Shri Pranab Mukherjee said “We live in a rapidly changing world to which the film industry will have to adjust and adapt. Technology has brought down the costs of production and expanded the mechanisms of dissemination. Still cameras and cell phones that record video can be now edited on a home computer and uploaded on the net. Promotion and marketing of films have now taken on a new avatar with substantial marketing happening on social media – news of a good film now spreads quicker on twitter than by word of mouth. I also understand 2014 saw the launch of four film and entertainment focused investment funds”.

The President further stated that with the world’s youngest demography and the growing smartphone market, India is likely to soon embrace a completely digital ecosystem which would help us connect with even larger numbers transcending geographical and cultural barriers. The President also urged the film industry to look beyond markets and work together to help nurture universal human values that draw on India’s rich civilizational heritage that celebrates diversity and nurtures inclusiveness. He congratulated all the Awardees for their contributions in various fields of cinema.

The President further added, “Cinema in India crosses all boundaries of region, caste, creed and religion. It reflects the immense diversity of our nation which is home to different cultures, religions and languages. It shows the confluence of modernity as well as tradition as well as our ancient past and billion aspirations for the future. Digitization and the advent of modern technologies do not mean that we lose touch with the grass roots. Our content has to be our strength as it is entrenched sharply in our vibrant cultural milieu.”
