CALCUTTA INTERNATIONAL CULT FILM FESTIVAL: MARCH 2017

“There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.” – Federico Fellini

The vision of Calcutta International Cult Film Festival (CICFF) is the celebration of life. We’re shaping a world with media and technology, to improve lives, move communities forward and to inspire each of us to reach our full potential. To celebrate the liberation and freedom of visual storytelling CICFF is going to organize its second monthly screening with a small press conference on March 25th, 2017 at Indira Cinema. The sole purpose of the festival is to develop a film culture that inspires and brings together cross-cultural innovations that enrich people’s lives with entertainment: and services that inform, educate and entertain. The goals of the festival are to introduce more people to art house cinema and to discover new artists and audiences.

“We believe that cinema has the power to promote the fundamental principles of humanism.” – CICFF

CICFF is dedicated to providing support to independent filmmakers through reviewing, judging, marketing, and distribution networking. We overcome the obstacles that potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create. CICFF will unveil its complete line-up on Saturday, February 18th at a special Press Conference along with a screening program.

This is the second of a series of monthly events that Calcutta International Cult Film Festival is promoting before our annual gala for the Golden Fox Awards for 2017, to link the award winning projects to the film community and film industry. Please join us on March 25th at 9:00 am for the announcement of our spectacular 2017 lineup and screening of our international film selections at the venue below:
