Overview Of HBFF 2016

After two years of grand success, the Hyderabad Bengali Film Festival is back for its third edition. As always, eight films have been carefully chosen to ensure the right balance of variety and emphasis on a range of spectrums. Curated by Ratnottama Sengupta, a noted film critic who is also renowned for her writings on art, culture and cinema; the festival promises to be as vibrant as it will be informative.

Conquering new frontiers, we are introducing a Viewers' Choice Award for the first time in the history of HBFF. Now YOU, the audience, will get to vote for the best movie among the selection and be instrumental in appreciating the efforts of the cast and crew in making it.

As always, we are extremely privileged to have several luminaries from the Bengali film industry joining us.
