Kolkata, Nov 6 (IANS) Cine Central, one of the largest film societies in India, will screen 70 films from 30 countries as part of the 14th Kolkata Film Festival to be held here Nov 10-17.

'Besides some remarkable Indian films, we will be showcasing some of the best films from Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Iran, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Pakistan, Sweden, South Korea, Slovakia and Uruguay,' general secretary of Cine Central, Sadhan Chakraborty told reporters here Thursday.

Under the 'Homage' category, tributes will be paid to Cuban film director Humberto Solas and Egyptian director Youssef Chahine.
