The “International Literature Festival” at Goa is an attempt to align the event with the vision and mission of the “World Culture Forum” and to promote the festival to be one of one of the country’s leading festivals connecting with the masses. Providing a platform for a lively exchange of opinions on literature (fiction and nonfiction), ideas and opinions, the Festival invites authors, poets, dramatists, artists, lyricists, scriptwriters, filmmakers and intellectuals from all across the country and the world. The Festival is an attempt to provide a space for discussion with the objective for flourishing of ideas.
In time, there’s hope for the expansion of the Festival as its influence increases, while catering to a large audience. The festival will take place amidst the stunning backdrop of Goa, a city known for the beautiful amalgamation of contemporary architecture carefully crafted and the stunning seascape which creates an atmosphere of an old world charm.
“Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
