Kolkata: RSS affiliate ‘Chitra Bharati’ has invited people across the state to submit documentaries and short films focused on India’s cultural ethos.

The outfit’s coordinator, Debashish Iyer, said they are looking for films that will highlight ‘nationalism’ and ‘unsung heroes’ of Bengal.

“This is a platform for alternative thinkers, filmmakers, artists and those who are associated with theater with a vision to use cinema to spread message of nationalism, harmony and love across the state,” he said.

Iyer claimed that more and more films nowadays are being used for political propaganda “with the intention to malign the eternal values of India”. Their initiative, he claimed, will counter this narrative.

“Through this initiative we will promote our rich culture and values. This year in December we are organizing a film competition and a short film festival to find new talent who can produce films based on ‘Bharat’ and our role towards ‘Bharat’,” he said.
