Kolkata: A two-day film festival was organised by the Ministry of Culture's Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts to commemorate Partition Horrors Remembrance Day on 20th and 21st  August 2022 at Rabindranath Tagore Centre, ICCR in Kolkata.

The two-day film festival has screening of Bollywood blockbuster movies like “Gadar” Ek Prem Katha, starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel.

Apart from this Documentary / short film screening and panel discussion were also organised.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last year announced that August 14 would be marked as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day from 2022.

"Partition’s pains can never be forgotten. Millions of our sisters and brothers were displaced and many lost their lives due to mindless hate and violence. In memory of the struggles and sacrifices of our people, August 14 will be observed as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day," the prime minister had said in his announcement.
