The unique fest will begin on February 21 at Puri

BHUBANESWAR: Come February, Puri, the pilgrims' paradise, will be the favourite destination for filmmakers and film buffs from different parts of the globe as the fourth annual edition of BYOFF - Bring Your Own Film Festival - will be under way from February 21 to 25.

The unique festival was launched in 2004 by a bunch of filmmakers and film enthusiasts of Orissa.

Young and acclaimed filmmaker Susant Misra said the idea was to invite filmmakers to screen their works - feature films, short films, documentaries or music videos without having any awards, jury or a selection process.

As usual, the festival would be hosted on the golden sea beach of Puri adjacent to the Pink Hotel. "This time, we plan to have only one screen in the open air unlike the earlier years. Screenings will commence at sunset and go on till late into the night.
