Curtail fell on the first edition of the Hummingbird International Film Festival on Sunday, November 21, at the HL Roy auditorium hall, Jadavpur University in Kolkata. 

105 films from 35 countries around the world were screened during the festival in front of a large audience. 

On the final day, awards were given under the seven following categories: Best Fiction Film Award, Best Experimental Film Award, Best Documentary Film Award, Best Animation Film Award, Best LGBTQ Film Award, Best Director Award and Best Cinematography Award.

Bangladeshi film-maker Ariq Anam Khan’s short film “Transit” grabbed the Best Cinematography Award. 

The film had its world premiere at the highly prestigious Encounters Film Festival last year.

'Stuck in a lonely and unforgiving city, a Bus Canvasser waits for an opportunity to migrate to create a better future for his family. Migrating means making sacrifices, but sometimes the reasons to stay outweigh the reasons to leave,' reads the IMDb synopsis of the film.



The  short film  was  shot  in  2019,  and  completed  in  early  2020. Starring Jahangir Alam in the lead role, the cast also includes Sharmeen  Akhee,  Baidya  Nath  Saha, Khairul  Alam  Tipu,  Sharif  Hossain Emon and others.

Earlier, along with Rezwan Shahriar Sumit’s debut feature film “Nonajoler Kabbo,” “Transit” was selected to compete at the 25th Busan International Film Festival.
