Marathi International Film and Theatre Awards (MIFTA) will take place in Dubai this year providing a global platform to Marathi movies and theatre.
Modelled on the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), MIFTA is the brainchild of actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar and will be organised in association with Raja Rani travels.
Manjrekar said the event would be a three-day affair from December 16 to 18. The awards ceremony would be held on December 17. “It is not just an awards ceremony, but an experience to remember,” said Manjrekar, adding that Salman Khan, Ashutosh Gowariker, Marathi actor-filmmakers Sachin Pilgaonkar, Mahesh Kothare, Keda Shinde, Vijay Kenkre, Jayant Pawar and Shafaqat Khan are part of the jury that will decide on the MIFTA nominations, which would include technical and popular awards.
