After successful screening at 69th Cannes Film Festival, Elixir, a short film directed by Anirban Guha and starring Mahul Brahma and Daminee Benny Basu, has been selected at the 22nd Kolkata International Film Festival to be held on Nov 11-18, 2016.
The film also won the Best Short Film at Boston's Bengali Film Festival Caleidoscope. Lead actor Mahul Brahma, a former journo and now a corporate communicator, who won the Young Achiever Award this year, said: "It was a dream to watch the screening of our film at Cannes Film Festival. Winning Best Short Film at Boston festival was a humbling experience. But selection in 22nd Kolkata International Film Festival is most cherished for us, primarily because it is in this city of love and creativity - Kolkata. I pray the Kolkata audience will watch it and love it. I am sure the recognition received by films such as Elixir will inspire more and more film-makers to create a magic."
