Speaking after inaugurating the 14th Bengaluru International Film Festival on the stairs of Vidhana Soudha here on Thursday, he said the City of Bengaluru has grown to an international level so the international film festival is taking place here. The cinema has a big history and the best technology is used. A lot of changes have taken place after digitalization.
There are a lot of differences in the movies seen by them and their children. As life is growing very rapidly even the field of cinema is also moving fast and following this technology will bring success. No one expected Kanthara, a Kannada movie that revolves around local culture will go to the international level.
“My heartiest congratulations to the entire team. We must feel proud that RRR won an oscar award. That means we are not far from the Oscar award and it may happen every year. This year, the good movies are selected and they will go to the international level. There is no life without cinema and we have done whatever is required for this field. We have hiked the subsidy and increased the number of films to get it. The film city will become a reality and even the Hollywood movies must be shot here”.
