For this year’s Satyajit Ray Memorial Lecture, KIFF is delighted to have the ace storyteller as the esteemed speaker, sharing his views centering around the subject - “Social Responsibility in Mainstream Indian Cinema”.

The festival organisers have also scheduled a screening of Anubhav Sinha’s critically-acclaimed movie, Mulk featuring the late Rishi Kapoor on the second day of the festival.

Sinha’s recent works, Mulk (2018), Article 15 (2019) and Thappad (2020) have held the mirror for the society and has shown the consequences of religious biases, caste discrimination, and domestic violence. The importance and gravity of the lecture’s subject will thereby be elucidated through a discussion of his critically acclaimed works.

Anubhav Sinha says, “I feel honoured to be invited to such a prestigious film festival where I’ve been showered with the esteemed responsibility of delivering Satyajit Ray Memorial Lecture. I look forward to meeting and interacting with eminent personalities there. I’m delighted that Mulk will be screened at the festival.”

In view of Covid-19 pandemic, the 26th edition of Kolkata International Film Festival has been designed in a smarter frame giving due importance to the social distancing. This edition is proposed primarily in online mode for the cine lovers, critics, actors and others so that they continue to feel the pulse of the gala international film festival in the cultural capital of India.
