Noida: “I try to push ideas away and the ones that will not leave me are the ones that ultimately end up happening, and one of those is the announcement of ICMEI International Award for Excellence in Cinema during 13th Global Film Festival Noida 2020. Now we have constituted this new prestigious award. We don’t make movies to make more money but we make money to make more movies. Cinema has to be always backed and supported by passion,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios and founder of Noida Film City.
Sandeep Marwah, forty years in glamour business, is seven times World Record Holder in Media. He is the recipient of more than seven hundred awards from all over the World, chairing around hundred film, television, media, social, governmental and private organizations and is the cultural Ambassador of many countries.
“Create your own visual style, let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable to others. Film Making is ultimate team sort. To make a film is easy but to make a good film is a war and to make a very good film is a magic. I always consider film makers as magicians,” said H.E.
