The 16th Dhaka International Film Festival (DIFF) will be held in Dhaka from January 12 to 20, 2018. The theme of the festival is ‘Better Film, Better Audience, Better Society’. The festival is organised on a regular basis by Rainbow Film Society, which is committed to the promotion of a healthy cine culture in Bangladesh and celebrating the global mainstream in films and its social relevance since 1977. During the 16th DIFF, the organisers expect to screen about 170 films, with participation from around 60 countries. DIFF is one of the most prestigious film events in Bangladesh and, to a great extent, has helped shape an increasingly healthy and positive national film culture.

A Death In The Gunj

Set in 1979, A Death In The Gunj is a coming of age film about a shy student Shyamal Chatterjee, directed by Konkona Sensharma. He goes for a family road trip to McCluskiegunj, an old Anglo-Indian town, as an escape from his failed semester. At the outset, the makings of a perfect family holiday are in place but something is amiss. In the week that follows, Shyamal’s quiet unraveling is overlooked by the family revelers, until the holiday ends with an implosion.

 OPENING FILM

Zer

Directed by Kazım Öz, Zer is the story of a song, whispered into Jan’s ear on his grandmother’s deathbed. A survivor of the Dersim Massacre, Zarife had hidden her identity in her memory of this song. Raised in New York City, Jan begins a journey through Kurdistan, searching for his grandma’s past and his self.
