Noida: A documentary film is a non-fictional motion-picture intended to “document reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction, education or maintaining a historical record. Poetic Documentaries. Expository Documentaries, Observational Documentaries, Participatory Documentaries, Reflexive Documentaries, and Performative Documentaries are the different types we have been promoting in Global Festival of Journalism in these last eleven years,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios at the opening of Venezuela Film on the first day of GFJN at Noida Film City.
Life In A Dance- a full length documentary from Venezuela was the first film opened by Alfredo Caldera Charge D’ Affaires of Embassy of Venezuela in India. It is about the life and artistic career of the flamenco dancer from La Linea de la Concepcion, David Morales Ramirez. This film is in itself an example how a documentary transforms the life, not only of its protagonist, but also of its creators directed by Blanca Rey.
Later Dr. Sandeep Marwah presented an Award of Distinction to Alfredo Carla for the documentary being as one of the best nine documentaries of the festival. A memento of the festival was also handed over to the guest. The students of AAFT School of Journalism and Mass Communication and many film lovers from all over India enjoyed the screening of the film.
The event was supported by AUA-Asian Unity Alliance, IFTRC-International Film and Television Research Centre, AAFT University, IPBF-International Public Broadcasting Forum, and WPDRF- World Peace Development and Research Foundation.
