30 Mar – 01 Apr | 2018
The original motivation behind film festivals was culture and tourism, not business.
The idea for the very first occurred to sculptor Antonio Maraini, secretary-general of the Venice Biennale, when he was watching a football match.
His aim was to create an artistic event as popular as any big sports gathering and, when the Venice Film Festival held its inaugural edition in 1932, guests sat in the gardens of the Excelsior Hotel, sipping cocktails while watching Fredric March and Miriam Hopkins in Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde on an outdoor screen — with not a distributor or trade paper in sight.
Flash forward 85 years to the 2017, eight decades after that revolutionary event what is the need of creating a new festival ? When a more than 4000 festivals are already in exsitance.
We are proud to present the second edition of DFK New Wave. This year’s festival will run from MARCH 30th- ARRIL 1st, 2018. DFK New Wave is founded to nurture and create a loyal audience base for global independent films. The festival will strive to promote an open environment for artists, writers, actors, film-makers and will focus on offering great networking opportunities for its participants.
This year we will screen narratives, documentaries, animation, VR films, short
films and feature films. We are looking for documentaries where the film-maker had a passion which he/she put into the film. No matter the subject, if the work has merit and the filming is well done; be it a full-length feature, a short or a super short – we are interested in viewing it. We are looking for all genres of narratives from comedy to drama and from thrillers to love stories.
We believe the purpose of film festivals should be changed after so many years. We are on a eve of delivering a much expected revolution of film festival.
-which initiates converstaion and round table discussion after each screening.

DFK New Wave is a Directors’ Fortnight Kolkata program.
Established independent film directors of the city of joy Kolkata felt that the need for having a festival just by the directors. For the directors.
That is why the birth of DFK. It is a collaborative effort of independent filmmakers to facilitate world-class cinema here at the heart of City of Joy.
