KOLKATA  (C.M. Paul) – The Mother Teresa International Film Festival (MTIFF) organizers were able to accommodate a group of 82 senior students of Don Bosco Technical School Park Circus for what is claimed as the best and longest feature film made so far on Mother Teresa. Entitled MADRE TERESA the three hour long Italian production in English language stars Golden Globe Award winner Olivia Hussey as Mother Teresa. Escorted by four teachers, the students were accommodated in two different halls (Nandan 2 & 3) which for the good luck of students were screening the same film at the same time!
The festival is taking place in the Nandan Film Centre of the Govt of West Bengal which granted four halls for four days (26-29 August).
Nandan 4 is exclusively for the physically challenged and wheel chair bound persons as it has ramp access.
“We did not want to turn away eager students who landed up at the festival gates without tickets. However, we were fortunate to accommodate all of them as it was the opening show on the second day (Friday noon) and the overcast skies discouraged many ticket holders to turn up for the three hour show,” explained MTIFF2010 director Sunil Lucas.
“It was a risk that we took of sending students without prior booking… but for many of them it would be a life time experience,” said DB Tech Superintendent Fr Jijo.
From the first day of the festival, several schools brought batches of  students, all dressed in their distinctive uniforms, for shows during the school hours or after.
The in-mates of Mother Teresa Institutions in the city were conspicuous with their presence at the various shows.
The third edition of MTIFF 2010 has 50 shows featuring 15 Mother Teresa films from 7 countries. The festival will travel to almost 100 towns and cities across India and some 15 countries.
