About :

The 29th edition of the Kolkata International Film Festival organized by the Information and Cultural Affairs Department, Government of West Bengal is scheduled to be held between 5 - 12 December, 2023 in Kolkata, the cultural capital of the State. Accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers' Association or FIAPF in short, 29th KIFF promises to be more exciting, appealing and satisfying to the cine lovers as they will continue to feel the charm of world class cinema in the City of Joy.

The Kolkata International Film Festival which had started in the year 1995, had drawn inspiration from film legends in Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Mrinal Sen and many more stalwarts of cinema from Bengal, who have contributed to world cinema; hence the festival has earned international accolade since the very beginning but was somewhat confined to the more sophisticated and learned fraternity.

It was only in the year 2011 under the able leadership of the Hon'ble Chief Minister, West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee that the doors of this gala event were opened to the masses and since then, the spectacle of KIFF has never failed to reach to the common man, touching the hearts of thousands of cine lovers who wait every year to get absorbed in the festivity of world cinema.

One of the flagship events of the State Government, KIFF not only caters to the cinephile in Kolkata but it captivates viewers who have penchant for cinema of international standard. With each year, KIFF has grown bigger, greater and more fulfilling in terms of its variety, expanse and popularity. Keeping the zestful tradition alive, the 29th KIFF promises to be even more magnificent and true to its style.
