Incidentally, the festival calendar has changed in recent years due to Corona. The state government organizes the film festival twice this year. Reminiscing about this, Raj said, “It’s very difficult to organize a festival twice a year. It wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless efforts of our entire team.” Reminiscing about the glory of the Kolkata Film Festival, Prosenjit said, “Once when I was working in two shifts, I always stopped filming and tried to watch films at the festival. Now the scope of the festival increased, yet my enthusiasm for watching the film did not wane.
This year’s festival will celebrate the “career” of Amitabh Bachchan. There is therefore a “retrospective” of his film. Apart from that, there is an exhibition called “Amitabh Bachchan: A Living Legend” at Gaganendra Pradashsala and Nazrul Tirtha. In the special exhibition section of the festival, the film ‘Hawa’, which caused a sensation in Bangladesh, is there. The controversial and Oscar-winning Pakistani film “Joyland” has arrived at the festival. Apart from that, the festival will pay tribute to Tarun Majumder, Pradeep Mukherjee, Shivkumar Sharma and Angela Lansbury.
