Sandeep Marwah shows the way again..!!
“This is the 10th year we have planned an international Documentary Film Festival under the banner of Global Festival of Journalism Noida 2022.

This year documentary film festival will go international way,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah, Chancellor of AAFT University of Media and Arts in a joint meeting to announce 10th edition of Documentary Film Festival.
“Global Festival of Journalism Noida has already emerged as the most exclusive festival of the world.

“International Journalism Centre has suggested to give more time to film-makers to submit their documentaries. The last date of submitting the documentaries is going to be 31st March. Some very valuable awards are being planned for the winners. There will be also a participating certificate for every film,” added Ashok Tyagi, Director of Global Film Festival Noida & Hindi Cinema Samman Samaroh.
There are three categories of submission of films: upto 15minutes, 30 minutes and 60 minutes. The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Award for Documentary is for best film, best director, best cinematographer, best sound and best editor. The award function will take place in Vigyan Bhawan in the month of April.
