Bhubaneswar film fete to begin on Jan. 7

Correspondent

It will be hosted by Film Society of Bhubaneswar


It is named as ’Saalam Cinema’ this year to salute the power of films

Some 16 films will be screened at the event


BHUBANESWAR: City’s connoisseurs of world cinema are excited over the coming 4th annual Bhubaneswar Film Festival (BFF) scheduled to commence on January 7 (Wednesday).

Being hosted by the Film Society of Bhubaneswar (FSB), the five-day event is being organised at the KIIT Auditorium on Krishna Campus of KIIT University here.

“The festival has to be shifted to a new venue under compulsion. We planned to host it at the Jayadev Bhavan in the heart of the city as usual in November but despite our prior booking of the auditorium a month ahead of the schedule, the booking was cancelled at the last hour by the auditorium authorities citing urgent renovation work as reason,” explained the hosts.

The festival this year has been named as Saalam Cinema that would be the opening film. It has been made by the acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf. “We salute the power of cinema and hence have named it this way,” the hosts added.

Sixteen films would be screened during the festival in four slots – 11 am, 2 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm. There will be two special screenings for school children while the closing film will be last year’s national award winner (in regional cinema category) Oriya film Kathantara directed by Himanshu Khatua.

The films of various countries slated for screening include Japan, China, USA, France, Uruguay, UK, Russia, Mexico, Poland, Italy, South Africa and New Zealand. The filmmakers include the renowned French filmmaker Francois Truffant and Krzsszlof Kieslowsky from Poland.
