OUR RECENT EVENT

Cine Central, Calcutta

Cine Central, Calcutta, the largest film society in India, came into existence at a time when there was
great socio-economic-cultural upheaval throughout the world. Creative film-makers in various
countries were experimenting and evolving new language of cinema—transforming cinema from mere
entertainment to the most powerful medium of our time. There was very little scope to view those
great films. A band of young film-enthusiasts decided to form a society to present the best of world
cinema to the film-lovers of this city. The first show of the society was held at Tiger cinema on
Sunday, 31st October, 1965 with the screening of Russian film ‘The Road to Life’. The first committee
was headed by veteran film director Madhu Bose and legendary film director Satyajit Ray as Vice-
Presidents.
