Fourth Global Film Festival, Noida 2011 threw a new light on the burning issue of Corporatization of Bollywood films.  Film makers, experts and academia discussed threadbare various dimensions of this crucial subject.

Renowned filmmaker from South K.Hariharan was of the opinion that filmmaking needs to be disciplined and regulated as against the freewheeling attitude that resulted in a chaotic situation. But singer and actor Arun Bakshi said the private companies had no business to be there.

Renowned Director Singeetham Srinivasa Rao and Pankaj Parashar also contributed to the total discussion on both advantages and disadvantages of the same.

The moot point was that creativity of the filmmaker shouldn’t be compromised under any circumstances. Festival President Sandeep Marwah came up with a reconciliatory note that keeping the creative freedom intact, some kind of accountability mechanism need to be evolved. alt

Indian films `Pushpak’ by Srinivasan Sangeetam, `Main Azaad Hoon’ by Tinu Anand and `Banaras’ by Pankaj Parashar will be shown.

International Film and Television Club or IFTC was instituted by the Asian Society for Film and Television to promote media and entertainment education and to strengthen its conceptualization, innovation and implementation. Ever since its inception, national and international events have been part of its activities. The 4th Global festival has emerged as its annual flagship showcase.

The international film fest stands distinct with its special focus on the culture of Wales. Five movies from Britain will highlight the unique age old civilisation and its supreme culture. Distinguished films like `Brides of the war’ by Peter Edwards, `Hedd Wyn’ by Paul Turner, `Eldva’ by Timlyn, `Little White Lies’ by Caradog James and `Gaenor’ by Paul Morrison will entertain viewers.

Hailing from different cultural and traditional background, a veracity of national and international films will be screened at the film fiesta. The fest provides a common platform which is nothing less than a congregation of different faiths and beliefs. This strongly endorses the message that `cinema is the ultimate religion of the world, unifying all faiths.’

One of the major attractions at the film arena is the inclusion of 14 outstanding documentaries by the Films Division of India. This will serve as a learning experience for the media students at the Marwah Studios who will get due exposure in the centenary old art form of mass communication’. These include `Indira Priydarshini’ by Yash Chaudhary, `CRPF’ by Mahmood Qureshi, `Exploration Antarctica’ by Deepak haldankar, `Man in Search for Man’ by Prem vaidya, `Chitrakaar ki Nazar se’ by Hussain, `Ananta’ by Girish vaidya, `Radha and Krishna’ by J.S.Bhownagary, `Hill Agriculture New Vista’ by Akhilesh Goorha, `Through the Lens’ by Starkey and `Toote Pankh’ by Kuldeep Sinha, `Story of Delhi’ by Serbjeet Singh, `High Adventure on White Water’ by C.L. Kaul, `Khajuraho’ by Mohan Wadhwaney and `Encounter with Faces’ by Vinod Chopra.

This year some good movies have been shortlisted by the Children’s Film Society of India and the International Children Film Forum. Films include `Lukka Chuppi’ by Vinod Ganatra, `Yeh Hai Chakkad Bakkad Bambe Bo’ by Sridhar Rangayan, `Chhota Sipahi’ by Jayashree Kand, `Chutkan ki Mahabharat’ by Sankalp Meshram, `Gilli Gilli Atta’ by Pankaj Parashar, `Lagi Shirt’ by Raghubir, `Nandu ka Raja’ by Shaleen Sehgal, `Radio Comes to Rampur’ by Asha Dutta and `Uranchchoo’.

Students from more than 100 schools in Noida and NCR have been invited and even allotted special time slots to participate in the special activities and screenings at the fest.

Another major focus is on the half a dozen films made by famous French Film Director Jean Rouch. Heralded as one of the founders of cinéma vérité in France, his work has many resemblances to direct cinema. His life as a filmmaker spanning over sixty decades in Africa, was manifest with visual anthropology. Influenced by his discovery of surrealism in his early twenties, many films border on the line between fiction and documentary, to create a new style of ethno fiction. His film `Me a Black’ (Moi un Noir) later initiated him into the technique of jump cut popularized by Jean-Luc Godard, is slated for screening at the fest. Other films include `Little by Little’, `Hunting the Lion with Bow and Arrow’, `The Mad Masters’, `Chronicles of Summer’ and `Mosso Mosso’, a tribute to the great legend by Jean Andre Fieschi.

Besides a stream of films to entertain visitors, three workshops will also be held with topics ranging from `Towards Digital Cine’ by K. Hariharan, `From Print to Electronic: Transition in Creativity’ by Santosh Bhartiya and Delhi and `Future of Bollywood’ by Ashok Tyagi. In addition, three seminars will be organized on three consecutive days to provide a platform for film critics and experts from various universities to know about films.

The first seminar will begin with `Corporatisation and Cinema’ as corporatisation is the new buzz in Bollywood. On one level, it has brought about the much needed moolah for filmmakers but on the other snatched away their creative freedom. These two theories will be a topic of discussion by a panel of Sumit Singhal from NDTV and Sudhir Tandon, former DDG of Doordarshan.

Next in succession will be a seminar on the age old relationship between cinema and literature. Indian writers have not made a mark but lyricists have done a commendable job in the world of Hindi films be it Sahir, Gulzar, Jaan Nisar Akhtar with their creative instincts and aesthetic sense. The panelists include Pratap Sahgal and Divik Ramnesh. The last day will witness the most relevant topic `Curse of piracy’ which affects films to a large extent. The panel will include Rajendra Sehgal and Anil Thakur.

As an initiative to promote young budding authors the Asian Art Academy will release five books during the occasion. To spice the event further, talks by eminent speakers from the All India Human Rights Association, World Religious Parliament and Global Yoga Alliance are on the anvil. Last but not the least, three art exhibitions by Tapan Das besides a posters display by the Asian School of Performing Arts along with a series of photos to adorn the venue.

GFFN Noida unfurled its door to connoisseurs’ of films five years ago. The first film fest was on `Peace and Spirituality’ while the second was on `Genre of documentaries’ and the third `Children’s films’. The third festival screened about 227 films from all over the world with more than 5000 footfalls. Critics, movie fans and the media have widely acclaimed the Global Film Festival as one of the most pertinent film festivals in north India. The fest has spread the message of love and unity through cinema and provides an opportunity for filmmakers, media students and professionals to share information about films.

For the first time in India any film festival has ever designed a retrospective of six films of the renowned French film director Jean Rouch. The retrospective will be shown at the 4th Global Film Festival Noida 2011 being held at Marwah Studios from 25th to 27th November 2011. 

 Jean Rouch is considered to be one of the founders of the cinéma vérité in France, which shared the aesthetics of the direct cinema. Rouch's practice as a filmmaker for over sixty years in Africa, was characterized by the idea of shared anthropology. Influenced by his discovery of surrealism in his early twenties, many of his films blur the line between fiction and documentary, creating a new style of ethno fiction.   

His seminal film ‘Me a Black Moi un Noir’ pioneered the technique of jump cut popularized by Jean-Luc Godard. This film is being shown in GFFN 2011. The other films will be ‘Little by Little’, ‘Hunting the Lion with Bow and Arrow’, ‘The Mad Masters’, ‘Chronicles of Summer’ and a tribute film on him ‘Mosso Mosso’ by Jean Andre Fieschi.
