Goa Tourism gears up to facilitate screen tourism

In order to develop Goa as a film tourism destination, the government is looking forward to ensuring various infrastructure facilities in place such as a film city and facilitate film production. It has plans for providing equipment such as cranes, spotlights, reflectors, camera etc. along with many other production facilities needed for film shootings. Easing editing will also create employment opportunities in the state.

Manohar Ajgaonkar, Minister for Tourism, Government of Goa, said, “Goa is all set to organise the annual International Film Festival (IFFI) which will draw the film fraternity and film fans to Goa in large numbers. The Entertainment Society of Goa is also playing an important role in easing out procedures and permissions for film shootings in Goa through a single window system.”

He also added that Goa is the most preferred destination for film shootings. Goa’s picturesque locations make it a hotspot for films and producers to come and capture the scenic locations of Goa which includes the beaches, heritage, hinterlands, monsoons, adventure activities, festivals and much more.
