Each year the festival celebrates a core theme and in 2019 the theme of the festival has been selected to be, 'courage'. Courage as a term has come to be true to the cinema, especially in the last few years. Be it on screen and off, Indian cinema’s content has chosen to tell stories of subjects, which have been brave, tough and have given us some heroic icons.
