Bengaluru Bengali Kannada Film Festival (BBKFF)
It started with a lot of dreams in 2017, when we organized the first Bengaluru Bengali Kannada Film Festival. The initial thought was to bring the best of Bengali Cinema available to the Bengali crowd here in Bangalore. But then, as often it happens that a simple thought goes through a journey and becomes something much bigger than what it initially was, something similar happened with us as well. It became a Bengali Kannada Film Festival, rather than a Bengali Film Festival, and yes, we screen Kannada cinema as well.
And now, after 5 years, we are a registered Film Society, are 3 film festivals old (2017, 2018 and 2019), having screened about 50 films across 6 languages – Bengali, Kannada, Hindi, Telugu, Odia, Malayalam, panel discussions on milestone cinema and legendary directors and their work, discussion sessions with esteemed filmmakers, actors, producers, and a lot of fun in all of this.
This film festival has enabled the viewers to be part of unique cultural exchanges and develop a taste for multi-lingual cinemas. The past three editions of BBKFF received overwhelming response from the audiences from Bengaluru, cutting across various communities. This festival has been recognized for its high standards by renowned films scholars and stalwarts from various Government and non-Government Film Federations of India.
