The delegation will comprise Italian filmmakers, writers, producers, animation studio heads, film technology professionals, film commissions of various regions of Italy, and so on.
The Italian delegation will share their knowledge and best practices in different verticals of the media and entertainment sector through masterclasses and workshops, and also through business-to-business meetings with their Indian counterparts to discuss business tie-ups, co-productions, content buying, and selling, etc.
Italy will also set up a country pavilion, organized by the Italian Trade Agency, at FICCI Frames 2020 to showcase potential film-shooting locations in Italy along with various incentives available for filmmakers. Indian states will also get an opportunity to showcase their shooting locations to the Italian producers.
