As many as 23 feature films, including Odia movie ‘Kalira Atita’ by award winning filmmaker Nila Madhab Panda has been selected in the Indian Panorama 2020 films for the eight-day International Film Festival of India (IFFI) scheduled to be held in Goa starting from January 16 to January 24, 2021.

Panda’s movie revolves around a man from the Satavaya village in east coast of Odisha who was swallowed by the sea, a phenomenon common on our east coast.

Speaking on the selection Panda says, “‘Kalira Atita’ is my first Odia film and I am really happy that it will start its journey with the prestigious IFFI. This is definitely one good news this year and I hope the year ahead will bring more cheer.”
