Mizoram capital Aizawl would be hosting the 6th Indian Panorama Film Festival from April 27 to 29. The state’s information commissioner R.L. Rinawma announced this on Saturday following a meeting with Bhupendra Kainthola, director of National Film Awards and Indian Panorama. Kainthola later called on the Mizoram governor M.M. Lakhera at Raj Bhavan to officially inform him about the film festival. The governor is understood to have sought sightseeing by helicopter for the festival invitees.

Lakhera hoped that the films to be screened would go a long way in bonding the youth of Mizoram and the rest of the Northeast with their counterparts in mainland India.

The state’s chief secretary Vanhela Pachuau later assured Kainthola that the government will leave no stone unturned for the success of the film festival.
