Mission / description ***CICFF is proud to announce that became a member of the British Film Institute, London & Film Society of Lincoln Center, New York***

CICFF is a monthly live screening film festival, opened in November 2016, with a yearly live screening mega event in the City of Joy - Kolkata, scheduled for October 2017.

Mission: The sole purpose of Calcutta International Cult Film Festival (CICFF) is to develop a film culture that inspires and brings together cross-cultural innovations that enrich people’s lives with entertainment: and services that inform, educate and entertain.

The event's goals are to introduce more people to art-house cinema. We would like to see films made primarily for aesthetic and philosophical reasons. We believe that a story driven by a genuine expression can stimulate new thoughts that have the power to promote the fundamental principles of humanism; expand creative frontiers; stimulate new levels of compassion, and even lead to social change. The Festival is an organization dedicated to the discovery and development of new Artists and Audiences. The Festival seeks to support and inspire independent film and theatre artists from all over the world, and to introduce audiences to their new work. We also welcome established Art-house filmmakers, who have already produced a major contribution to the art of filmmaking.

Each month more than 20 films from the different categories will be officially selected and out of them at least one per category will be awarded. The most representative are monthly screened in Calcutta and have an academic and detailed review published at our International film magazine CULT CRITIC. In addition, the best of each month's category will compete with all the others at the end of the year and the best of the best in each category will receive the prestigious GOLDEN FOX AWARD.

The annual event will be a glamorous red carpet premiere with press conferences and gala parties at Kolkata in the presence of international movie celebrities. The participants will have excellent opportunities to exchange their ideas, ideologies and cultural innuendoes. The winners will have a chance to meet with the audience and participate in a Q and A after the screening.

CICFF is a division of Human Lab Corporation, a leading International film production and distribution company. At CICFF, we will be providing incentives for winning films, and present promotional strategies for the winning films and their directors.

First we will conduct an Interview with the director which will be posted in our HLC portal, plus a published review by one of our esteemed writers from CULT CRITIC magazine. But that's not all: CICFF will take you global with international distribution opportunities for your films.

CICFF is a festival celebrating the arts, liberation and independence. We promote liberated platforms for all independent filmmakers throughout the World. And, irrespective of their subject matter, we will assure an international platform for them all.

In closing, CICFF guarantees outstanding selections each month, as the festival will be held on a monthly-basis. Hence we are going to create a culture that leads to “directors in the making” every month. Yes! That’s the perfect idiom for the Calcutta International Cult Film Festival.
