A three-day documentary film festival was recently organised at the GKCM Odissi Research Centre auditorium in the city by the Film Society of Bhubaneswar (FSB). At the event, Indian Documentary Film Festival of Bhubaneswar (IDFFB) 2019, over 30 documentary films from different parts of India were screened. Hundreds attended the fest on all three days. The festival was organised in support of Vikalp, India Foundation of the Arts (IFA) and Kerala Chalachchitra Academy.

The festival showcased handpicked films from across genres like visual arts and performing arts, music, politics, love and sexuality, gender, labour, cultural activism and many more. There was also a section on experimental filmmaker Pramod Pati. Senior filmmaker Goutam Ghose attended the event with his documentary on Ustad Bismillah Khan and conducted a master class for the participants. For young participants, the festival gave a chance for them to interact with the likes of Goutam, Stanzin Dorzai, Amit Mahanti, Bijay Nishanka, Aditi Uddali and Santosh Gour.
“The focus of the festival was to showcase unseen stories from various regions, bringing important topics to the table in a way that also sparks conversation and discussion. Exposure to such cinema puts human faces on global issues that might otherwise seem incomprehensible,” said Subrat Beuraa, an organising member.
The festival presented some unique documentary films to the young filmmakers and film enthusiasts of the city, who got to learn a lot about the craft of film making by watching and interacting with the masters of the field. The organiser, FSB, organises monthly screenings of two global films for its members.
