Calcutta International Cult Film Festival (CICFF) is an ISO 9001: 2015 Certified Film Festival and an IMDb Award Listing Qualifier. CICFF is a monthly film festival with a yearly LIVE screening mega event in the City of Joy, Kolkata.


As the name suggests, our festival is dedicated to films and genres outside the mainstream. We sincerely focus on cult films, which significantly include horror, sci-fi, bizarre, weird and fantasy. We also explore other genres and sub-genres that don’t get the opportunity to play on the big screen. We welcome submissions under the banner New Media (VR, Music Video, Online TV etc) if the subject fits the themes of the festival. Our main motive also lies that we introduce people to art-house cinema. We would like to see films made primarily for aesthetic and philosophical reasons. We believe that a story driven by a genuine expression can stimulate new thoughts that have the power to promote the fundamental principles of humanism; expand creative frontiers; stimulate new levels of compassion, and even lead to social change.
