Thanks to prayers of people and the intervention of Bl. Mother Teresa that the Mother Teresa International Film Festival (MTIFF 2010) went on without a hitch. The torrential rain which threatened to play the spoilsport held back for a day to allow the MTIFF to go on. Droves of people and children braved the drizzle and the pot holes to attend the MTIFF 2010 on 26 November 2010 at Devar Hall, Trichy.
MTIFF 2010 started off with an inaugural function at 9.30 a.m. at Devar Hall, Trichy. Rev. Antony Devotta D.D., Bishop of Trichy, and Fr. Amalraj Susai SDB, Salesian Provincial of Trichy graced the occasion and kicked off MTIFF. Speaking on the occasion the Bp. Devotta reminded the people about the noble deeds that Mother Teresa had done. ''She left the security of the Loreto convent to work in the filth ridden slums of Kolkata. The world still needs her service. Let the films that we see today motivate us to become today's Mother Teresa.''
Films on Mother Teresa highlighting a particular aspect of her life were screened during the entire day to a packed audience. In the Name of God's Poor produced by Dominic Lappiere was the opening film for the festival. The film probes the human side of Mother Teresa and the struggles she had to face within the Church as well as from the civil authorities.
''MTIFF 2010 is travelling to several places in India. Alaihal Media is organizing MTIFF 2010 in Trichy in association with Poondi Matha Constructions and Arasu Hyundai,'' said Fr. Gamaliyel SDB, Festival Director. ''Alaihal Media is organizing MTIFF 2010 in Coimbatore as well on 30 Nov 2010. Our intention in organizing this film festival is not to showcase the noble deeds but to motivate the people and children to care for the poor and marginalized,'' he added.
