Kolkata International Film Festival

Dates: November, 2016
Place: Kolkata, India

The journey for the second oldest film festival in India began in 1995 when the first independent international film festival was inaugurated at Nandan- West Bengal Film Centre. It was essentially the culmination of a sincere Film Society Movement which has its roots in the works of the master filmmakers of Kolkata like Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen and Ritwik Ghatak . Retracing this glorious heritage, Nandan, created by Government of West Bengal in 1985, was inaugurated by Satyajit Ray. He was the first chairman of its governing body,too. Nandan continues to be the focal point of Kolkata International Film Festival.
