This is the first time Federation of Film Societies of India (Eastern Region) is organising such a huge competitive festival of short fictions and documentaries with 179 titles from different countries of South Asia. A large number of participants from different parts of the country and also from the neighboring countries are expected to participate. We have tried our best to make a bouquet of quality films with wide variations. Three high profile official jury and a highly qualified critic jury are judging the films of different categories for several awards and honors. We are thankful to the jury members for their untiring efforts to judge the bests of the lots. After Kolkata, a selected package of films of this festival, will also travel to different cities of India. We wish to continue this festival every year.
