Founded by the Government of Goa in 2004, Entertainment Society of Goa, known as ESG was the 1st Event and Entertainment Agency across the State. Entertainment Society of Goa was started with one focused, single idea in mind to bring the best of the events, film festivals and creative minds of vibrant entertainment industry from all over the globe at one place, on one platform and to make State of Goa the hub of this industry.
ESG became the nodal agency to organize and execute the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) on behalf of Government of Goa. The festival is a joint collaboration between Government of Goa and Government of India. ESG has been successfully executing this festival from 2004 since the year of its establishment.
Over the years, this organization, either on its own or thorough collaborations has also hosted various National and International Film Festivals. It has executed events for both private and Government bodies. It also provides permission for film shooting across the State of Goa on behalf of Government of Goa.
ESG has made efforts to conduct educational lectures and courses that benefit creative minds and has a Cinephile Club for film enthusiasts. In addition ESG in the year 2019 collaborated and signed MOU with Goa Collage of Art, a Government of Goa institute to inculcate and involve students in the main stream through its activities and events. ESG through its various attempts provides platform to all interested in the field of creativity to showcase their talents with new perspective.
Our Mission, Spirit, Values and Behaviours are what separate us from other Societies.
They are the strengths that underpin our entire approach to responsible, ethical business conduct. These attributes are exactly what makes Entertainment Society of Goa a great Organization to work for and to do business with.
