KolikataKolkata becomes Kolikata. And this avatar is for the 1st Independent Film Festival in the city.

Organisers note – Kolkata (spelt intentionally here as Kolikata, like the old vernacular version of the city’s name) adds another feather to its cap, by hosting an informally, and therefore, impartially organized independent film festival – the first for any Indian city. Nationally awarded films will be screened  alongwith short films made by non-film school students. The filmmakers will be interacting with both film academicians and aspiring filmmakers who are still in college.

Dates : 11-13 September 2013

Films : Independent Short Films, Documentaries and Feature Films.

Initiative : by Chalachchitra Sansad & Leela-Mochchhob

Associate Partner: Guruchandali, an anti-establishment Little Magazine from Kolkata.

Venue: Derozio Hall, Presidency University, College Street, Kolkata
