KIFF 2017: Govt making arrangements for another grand film fest

That time of the year is around the corner once again when Kolkata will play host to the grand Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF). It is accepted by one and all that this is one of the best film festivals in India, and it is also the one with the highest prize money.

The Bengal Government has made all the arrangements to make this another successful festival. The dates this time are November 10 to 17.

All through the eight days, films will be shown at 12 auditoria – Nandan 1, 2 and 3, Rabindra Sadan, Sisir Mancha, Navina Cinema, Star Theatre, Mitra Cinema, Inox at Salt Lake City Centre 1 Mall, Purbashree Auditorium at Salt Lake EZCC, Nazrul Tirtha and PVR Mani Square.

The festival is organised by the Information and Cultural Affairs Department of the Bengal Government.

Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and famous British director Michael Winterbottom in attendance, the government has also managed another coup of sorts by getting to screen a rare Godard film. This will be the first screening of the film in India.

Titled Rise and Fall of Small Film Company, Godard made this film for television, and was screened in 1986. According to many cine buffs, this is a watershed moment for an Indian film festival.

Among the films of Winterbottom that will be screened are Trishna, On the Road and Welcome to Sarajevo.
