KIFF to begin Nov 10
The Kolkata International Film Festival will raise the curtain on its 23rd edition on November 10 at Kolkata’s Netaji Indoor Stadium. Screenings and discussions will be held in 10 different theatres and auditoriums across Kolkata till November 17. Keeping in mind West Bengal Chief Mminister Mamata Banerjee’s dream of transforming Kolkata into London, Britain is chosen as the focus country for the KIFF this year. The festival will also see a package of seven Moroccan films. A delegation of actors, directors and producers from Morocco is expected to attend the festival. The organizers told the press that this year, the female filmmakers’ category was replaced by a category titled ‘Innovative Images in Cinema’. Films from Brazil, Lebanon, Italy, Iran, Hungary, Poland, India, Bangladesh and other countires will be screened under this category. Award-winning director Abu Sayeed’s experimental feature film Ekjon Kobir Mrittu, which is acclaimed to be the first crowdfunded feature in Bangladesh – that stars maestro  actor Jayanta Chattopadhyay in the role of the poet, and Irina Sultana in the role of ‘Death’ – will participate at the KIFF as the only feature film from Bangladesh. The only other Bangla feature film selected at the fest is Indrasis Acharya’s feature film Pupa in the India Select category. Ten other films in regional Indian languages will be showcased in the KIFF. The opening film at the festival will be the Iranian feature film Yellow, which is the debut feature of director Moastafa Taghizad’h. The film has already won several international awards all over the globe. According to the KIFF organisers, the historical festival will be attended by director, producer, actor and celebrities from all over the world including Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bacchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Kamal Hassan and recent Bahubali star Prabhas.
