The IFP festival will host multiple panel discussions about creative pursuits on October 21 and 22, 2023 by various filmmakers, musicians, writers, storytellers, and everyone who believes in the power of creating.

Millions dream of entering the creative industries in India, but only a few get in. If you, too, have creative pursuits but are confused about your next step, it can be helpful to take advice from those who have made their name in the arts. Doesn’t matter whether you’re a writer, content creator, scriptwriter, or musician, even a bit of advice can go a long way. If you're looking for similar advice, the IFP Festival might just be the right place for you. The festival will host discussions by various filmmakers, musicians, writers, storytellers, designers, visual artists, photographers, stage artists, YouTubers, performers, podcasters, standup artists, ad makers, tech enthusiasts, gamers, marketeers and more.
