Panaji, Nov 21 (PTI) Bollywood is making its way into film festivals like IFFI through money and it's unfair on independent filmmakers who need government support and a platform to promote their work, said veteran documentary filmmaker Arvind Sinha on Tuesday.

Sinha heads the non-feature film section of Indian Panorama at the ongoing International Film Festival of India (IFFI), which opened on Monday evening here in Panaji.

"What is to be promoted (through IFFI) is good cinema. Bollywood has its own money, finance, muscle power, through all these things they are getting into these spaces," the renowned documentary filmmaker told reporters here.
