Tashkent International Film Festival is taking place at Tashkent in Uzbekistan. Known as the “ Pearl of The Silk Road” , the Tashkent International Film Festival was started in 1968, and Indian film Amrapali was screened in the opening edition of the festival.

This Festival became a significant event in the cultural life of the peoples of the Asian and African continents and was marked by a creative exchange of experience and cultural cooperation, peace and friendship among peoples.

The festival platform would be utilized to promote this year’s edition of the 54th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), which is scheduled from 20th to 28th November 2023 in Goa, India.

Indian cinema made a name for itself on the world map back in the early Indian cinema days when the films of legendary actor & director Raj Kapoor received love from across the world, especially in Uzbekistan and the Central Asia region as well.

Indian cinema continues to have a charm to date as our cultural way of storytelling and art forms transcend into our storytelling and are appreciated not only in India but the world, such as the song “Natu Natu” from the film RRR by film director  Rajamouli that recently bagged the award for best song at the golden globe winning the heart of cinema lovers across the world.
