The festival will be presented by Hun-tre! International Manipuri Projects, a non-profit organisation working in Imphal on international projects in the fields of sports, culture, education and technology.

I said yes, as I felt Manipur needed an international film festival,” Somi told Seven Sisters Post over phone from New York, as to how the festival saw the light of the day.
