It’s been a very successful time,” remarked Douglas during interactions with the media.

Furthermore, the veteran actor highlighted the unifying power of movies, transcending barriers of language, race, religion, and gender. “Movies share the same language; audiences from wherever you are in the world can understand what’s going on. Movies bring us closer together, and I think that’s a very important aspect of it,” Douglas expressed, emphasizing the role of cinema in fostering cultural harmony and understanding.

The IFFI platform provided an opportunity for Douglas to reflect on the significance of movies as a universal medium that bridges diverse cultures. His words echoed the sentiment that film festivals, like IFFI, serve as conduits for cultural exchange and global appreciation of cinematic artistry.
