Giving voice to people
When you live in such polarizing worlds, where powerful just dominates the society and hushes the words, cinema and film festivals are the only way to express yourself freely. Cinema is the portrayal of the cultural, political and socio-economical scenarios of that country. At one film festival while watching movies of different countries people get to be aware of that scenario. No leader, no government can control your opinions, formed by such films. Complex news stories, world politics might seem boring to you, but the same story when presented in a flow of story, is bound to get your attraction.
An open platform for brewing conversation
As mentioned before, cinema can make or break one’s perception about a certain country, people, place or even culture. Film Festivals like cannes2021; Hot Docs can be a really good platform to enjoy some head churning movies and have an open conversation about it, with the creators or other audiences. It will be an interesting experience of hearing what people have opinion about a particular film. If you are a filmmaker you must know this, Criticism is the KEY to betterment of work. As a filmmaker, when you get to showcase your work to this huge number of people, and they are talking about it and some maybe criticizing it, then you must take those criticisms in our mind, because they will eventually pave the, way to your success.
