News Desk, News Nation 360 : Pritam Sarkar, the organization's general secretary, will represent the Bengal Film Festival at the World Cinema Festival. The International Film Festival in Goa has commenced recently, thanks to the initiative of the Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Attendees included Madhuri Dixit, Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Pankaj Tripathi, Sunny Deol, and other well-known actors from both the Indian and international film industries. Pritam Sarkar, the general secretary of the Bengal International Film Festival, travelled from Bengal to Goa on this occasion to attend the event. Many began claiming around this film festival that the central government and the Gerua camp had started the Bengal Film Festival in West Bengal to compete with the state government's Calcutta Film Festival. Pritam Babu stated in this regard: "We have not taken this initiative to counter anything; rather, we want to give Kolkata and Bengal a cinema stage where the people around Bengali cinema will be dominant and the front row seats of the stage will be reserved for the stars of Bengali cinema." We are prepared to welcome all aspiring artists and will provide new boys and girls with the chance to learn about the art of the future. In this regard, he stated that he had expressed his gratitude to President Heimanti Banerjee, Chief Patron of the Bengal Film Festival Kanchan Banerjee, and their Festival Director, Sanghamitra Chowdhury, for providing him with this wonderful opportunity. He also expressed his gratitude to Anurag Thakur for his unwavering support. The international film festival, which debuted in the city last year and is organised in association with the Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, has grown significantly in popularity. Many artists and craftsmen from the Bengali film industry, such as Ranjith Mallick, Savitri Chatterjee, Rudra Prasad Sengupta, Madhavi Mukhopadhyay, and Papiya Adhikari, attended the event's launch in its first year. The event was inaugurated by Governor CV Anand Bose.
