Kathmandu, March 15
The 6t edition of the Nepal International Film Festival (NIFF) will begin on Thursday. Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal will inaugurate the festival.
The five-day festival will feature 96 films from 35 countries.
The films will be screened at QFX halls at Civil Mall, Chhaya Centre, Labim Mall and Bhatbhateni Superstore in Bhaktapur.
“We split up this year because we want more people to see these movies, perhaps by people from different countries,” says KP Pathak, NIFF president.
Chari, directed by Korin Sharma, will be the festival’s opening film.
As before, 14 prizes will be distributed in the seven categories.
This year, the festival will also host panel discussions on various film-related topics.
