Mission / description The Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival is a not-for-profit, non-commercial & India’s only independent film festival, established in the year 2011 in Noida (Delhi NCR) with a mission to celebrate the cinema & work of aspiring, young, independent & professional filmmakers. The festival is important for the Indian film industry as it is organized on 30 April each year to mark the birth anniversary of Late.Shri. Dhundiraj Govind Phalke, who is regarded as the father of Indian Cinema & fondly remembered as Dada Saheb Phalke by the film fraternity across the India & globe. Its aim is to recognize the enlightening, entertaining & progressive new age cinema of youth & experienced filmmakers.

In past years the festival has gained reputation & is regarded as being among the most prestigious festivals in India. The festival has grown over the years & attracts filmmakers from India & 45 nations across the world. The festival has sections for feature films, short films, documentaries, animations, music videos & ad films. The festival awards the filmmakers in production, creative & performance categories.

4th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival-2014 aims to celebrate the excellence in cinema. Dada Saheb Phalke started the movement of cinema in India in a real sense & he is the symbol of excellence. His contribution to Indian cinema is unparallelled. Today Indian cinema is touching the sky in terms of both content & technology but it is worth mentioning that it was started by the legendry Dada Saheb Phalke and we are just carrying it forward.

Founded by the Educationexpo TV, a leading entertainment research & branding company, Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival-14 provides a chance for filmmakers to showcase their creativity. While the festival is open to filmmakers of all ages, and we feel that it is imperative that we support and encourage participation by filmmaking community members & professional, it is also just as important that we find and cultivate the future members of the entertainment industry.
