Kolkata International Film Festival

The Kolkata International Film Festival is screened annually from 10–17 November. The largest and most prestigious of its kind in India, it was started in 1995 and is affiliated with the International Federation of Film Producers' Association (FIAPF) in Paris. 

Kolkata's strong ties to film-making (through such icons as Satyajit Ray and, more recently, Rituparno Ghosh) has boosted the festival and it screens a large clutch of international, critically acclaimed new films every year.

The Government of West Bengal created Nandan the West Bengal Film Centre in 1985. The centre was inaugurated by Satyajit Ray.  This festival enjoy all and wear new dress. From the moment of its foundation the Kolkatan film buffs demanded their own film festival.

In 1995, Nandan organized its first ever independent film festival. Within a couple of years it was recognized by FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers' Associations – Paris), the international authority of film festivals.
