Goa will host the Tri Continental Film Festival 2008 in Panaji between July 25 to July 30.
The festival will be held in collaboration with Goa International centre, Moving Images Goa and Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG), who are hosting International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
Around 21 films from Asia, Africa and America will be screened during the festival.
"The theme of the festival is based on human right violation and all the films will be based on this theme," Gayatri Konkar, partner, Moving Images, told reporters here yesterday.
Total 135 films were submitted of which select 21 were chosen for the festival, she added.
The festival was held for the first time in Argentina in 2002 and thereafter shifted places. Last year, it was held in Goa and we are repeating it again with the participation of Entertainment Society of Goa, Konkar said.
The aim of this festival is to bring human rights awareness amongst the commonest of the people, she added.
