As if everything Goa has to offer is not enough, it also hosts some of the most anticipated events and festivals in India – including the International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
So when i was chosen to be one of the bloggers to cover this magnificent melee of world cinema, luminaries of the film making world, a carnival of food, culture and allied festivities – i dropped everything else in Mumbai and spent the last 10 days of November 2016 in the sunshine state.
Every day, i had the option to watch upto 4 movies while exploring Panjim, Campal, Miramar and the region hosting IFFI.
It was a tough week of having so much fun and staying in a simple yet beautifully located hotel in the heart of the capital – The Panjim Residency. My favorite part was the rooftop where i shot a lot of these videos…

BIG thanks to IFFI and the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) for hosting me at this fabulous festival of cinema!
Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
