‘The Centenary Celebrations of Indian Cinema is jointly conducted by Tamil Nadu Government and South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce in Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai. 


Cultural programs by actors and actresses are to be held in the festival.  The rehearsal for those cultural programs is being held in Nehru Indoor Stadium. 


For the festival, a magnificent stage, which has so far not been seen, has been raised.
