People's Film Collective is very pleased to invite you to participate in the forthcoming 5th Kolkata People's Film Festival (KPFF 2018), to be held for four days, 18th-21st January 2018 (11 am to 9 pm daily) at the Jogesh Mime Academy auditorium, Kolkata.
KPFF is a non-sponsored, people-funded, independently organised cinema festival, showcasing politically conscious contemporary documentary & fiction cinema from India and the subcontinent. Held annually in Kolkata since 2014, KPFF is a much-awaited gathering - enthusiastically attended by the film and activist audience, bringing together filmmakers, students, workers, artists, writers, journalists and a wider cross-section of people to interact and form friendships over films and conversations.
Entry is free, with no requirement of tickets or passes. However, this being a people-funded festival run without any kind of institutional funding whatsoever, we appeal to all friends and well-wishers to generously donate to the festival fund to sustain the festival. Please get in touch with us at +91-9163736863 or [email protected] if you would like to contribute as a supporter!
Hope to see a lot of you there!
