Three-day Chinese film festival in Kolkata

Kolkata, Aug 8 (PTI) The Chinese consulate in Kolkata, in cooperation with Nandan – the culture hub of Bengal – is set to organize a three-day film festival here.

Seven Chinese films, including action-adventure comedy ‘Kung Fu Yoga’, martial arts flick ‘Tai Chi Hero’ and fantasy-drama ‘Rest On Your Shoulder’ will be screened at the festival from August 11 to 13, a statement issued by the consulate said yesterday.

“The film fest is part of the on-going effort of the Chinese consulate to increase understanding of China in Kolkata and Eastern India and promote cultural exchanges between the countries,” it said.

The tickets for the fest will be available for free at Nandan Complex from today.

“After the screening of each film, there will be a short quiz contest and souvenirs will be given to the one who gives the right answer. The consulate will also host a film review session for the audience,” the statement added.
