From May 16 to May 27, 2023, the 76th Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to take place. This year, India will be the festival’s main focus, with a particular emphasis on the nation’s creative economy.
The festival’s Indian pavilion’s theme is “Showcasing India’s Creative Economy to the World.” The Saraswati Yantra, a Hindu representation of knowledge and creativity, will serve as the inspiration for the pavilion. It will be created by Ahmedabad’s National Institute of Design (NID). The vibrant hues of the Indian national flag will serve as inspiration for the pavilion’s colour scheme.
