The 8th National Film Festival on Art and Artists started in Bhubaneswar January 11, 2014, Saturday. Inaugurated by Odisha’s Governor S.C. Jamir, at least 40 documentaries and short films are to be showcased in this unique festival. The focus of this year’s festival has been “Folk and Tribal Art and Culture."

“Due to the rampant urbanization we are moving away from tribal art and culture. This is a good attempt to bring all of us back towards our roots and provide some exposure to their rituals," said the Governor S.C. Jamir.

The festival began with screening of a six minute short film ‘Pankha: Alekh Baba’ by Jatin Das, Chairman of the host Organisation JDCA, who too has a vast collection of rare handmade fans.

 

Inaugural day of the festival also featured short films made by Meghnath, Goutam Ghose and other eminent filmmakers.

Goutam Ghose had World Premiered his film “Shuva and Me: a journey with Shuva Prasanna” and, also, spoke to the film lovers after screening of the film. Shuva Prasanna was also present for the premiere.

“I am very delighted to see such participation from people. The topic is very interesting and extremely relevant to Odisha as we have a very rich cultural and tribal heritage. I hope this festival will bring us closer to the tribal art and artists,” said Nandita Das, noted actress and daughter of famous artist Jatin Das.

“I visit this festival every year mainly because of the sheer dedication and professionalism with which JDCA projects an issue. The level of film selection is improving every year. I look forward to a great show,” said Padmashree titled danseuse Ileana Citaristi.

The festival was attended by eminent artists like Sarat Pujari, Sitakant Mohapatra among a good crowd of film lovers.

The festival will continue till January 13, 2014.
