Participation in Film Festivals Abroad (PFF)
 

On an average, the DFF sends films to 50 festivals each year the globe along with representation at major festivals such as Venice, Berlin, Cannes, Montreal, Karlovy Vary, Vancouver, Sydney and Moscow and subtitled prints of Indian Panorama films are sent to festivals in countries all over the world. The entries are chosen from the Indian Panorama section, which features the best Indian films of the year.  For certain major festival, the government also sponsors the visit to a foreign festival of the director of a film from the Indian panorama, provided the film has been entered in the competition section of the festival.

The DFF encourages the participation, in foreign festivals, of private producers of films, which have not been included in the Indian Panorama, but at their own cost.  However, to facilitate the process, the DFF provides these producers with a no-objection certificate for clearances from the Customs and Reserve Bank of India.  They must also inform the DFF prior to sending the prints abroad.
