The CBC Exhibition at 54th International Film Festival of India at Goa was designed to capture the essence of projecting Indian films and their contributions using new technology. The three-day event which was held last week was set up by the Central Bureau of Communication, Ministry Information & Broadcasting at Kala Academy, Panaji.
Anurag Singh Thakur, the I&B’s union minister, said the exhibition allows everyone to see the history, new technology and new interventions such as visual effects and use virtual reality to provide an immersive experience into the world of cinema. “It is the right place to explore, experience and get educated for cinema lovers,” he said.
The main theme of the exhibition is based on Indian cinema, where various aspects of cinema are depicted, such as cinema based on women empowerment, social causes and behavior change.
Allowing movie buffs to learn about cinema through interactive displays, the exhibition promised to be both an insightful and engaging experience. Various technologies like augmented reality and VR were used to enhance the experience of visitors.
