Published: 14th November 2017

A specially curated selection of James Bond films will be screened at the forthcoming 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI), to be held from November 20-28 in Goa.

The festival organisers announced yesterday that the special section will showcase nine films from the franchise, including Dr. No and Goldfinger starring Sean Connery; On Her Majesty's Secret Service starring George Lazenby; The Spy Who Loved Me and Octopussy starring Roger Moore; License to Kill starring Timothy Dalton; Golden Eye and The World is Not Enough starring Pierce Brosnan; and Skyfall starring Daniel Craig.

Festival Director Sunit Tandon said: "It is a first of its kind section at any film festival in the country, perhaps worldwide. The idea behind this was to be able to celebrate this highly popular franchise, tracing it through the years. Films featuring all the actors who have played this iconic character will be showcased. We are thankful to the producers and studios behind the franchise for making this possible."

Former tennis champion Vijay Amritraj and actor Kabir Bedi, both of whom starred in Octopussy, will attend the special screening.
