Big names from various fields will support the event.
"We are fortunate that we are getting support from top talents from different fields. This business is part of content and storytelling and stars are the faces of these content... we are extremely fortunate to have them," he said.
This edition is described as the landmark edition of the covention as it marks fifteen years of its inception with Australia as the partner country.
Filmmaker and co-chair of FICCI Ramesh Sippy says they will analyse the growth in the media and entertainment industry.
"Despite setting new records in the industry, the growth is not really seen on papers and we need to find out why. Why the result is not as much as it has to be? The potential is there, but we are way behind American films," said Sippy.
