Some more old Filmit Movies that didn’t get nominated for the Oscars but were still plenty of fun for Filmit Club members of days gone by.
MOVIES ON THE FORTS OF GOA
A series of historical movies was made on some of the ruined and not so ruined forts that are found in Goa.
THE CABO DE RAMA FORT.
This is one of the earliest of those historical documentaries made by doughty and intrepid RMS researchers of the past…tramping through down long forgotten paths like Indiana Jones and almost getting completely melted in the blazing heat.
A very brief look at this popular tourist site in North Goa. THE REIS MAGOS FORT
Two movies were made on this fort.This is the first of the two and it focuses on the location of the fort and some of its features. The second movie was made more recently and it is a light hearted and (slightly) humourous tale of visiting the fort and taking a look at what lay within. Movies on the Chapora Fort aand the Khorjurem Fort were also made but the original footage ,alas,is now lost.So you will have to visit the Filmit Website if you want to see them.
BONDLA WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
A documentary on the attractions in the best visited wildlife sanctuary of Goa And a movie that illustrates the difficulties that budding actors have in getting their lines right..! THE OLIVE RIDLEY TURTLE MOVIE.
A short movie about efforts made in Goa to conserve this endangered species and a look at their nesting site at the Agonda beach in south Goa.Kindly overlook spelling mistakes ( if you notice any ) BUTTERFLY CONSERVATORY
