The 26th Kolkata International Film Festival is on in full swing. Chairman of the festival, Raj Chakrabarty, has left no stone unturned to make the event a success. From attending the guests to steering the team for a better experience for the audience, Raj is seen everywhere. Is he getting any time to watch any film? “Of course. This year, the number of films has gone down for obvious reasons, but the quality remains intact. I will try and watch as many films as I can. It is really heartening to see so many people enjoying the celebration of cinema despite all odds,” he told us.
The chairman has also revealed his top five films from the festival catalogue.
