    Honourary Consul of Israel in Kolkata and leading industrialist Harshavardhan Neotia would inaugurate the fest at Nandan here tomorrow evening. Later the internationally acclaimed film 'Intimate Grammar' by award winning director Nir Bergman would be screened.

    The movies at the film festival, to be concluded on February 28, were primarily centred around the life and other aspects of the Israeli society at large, and would show at least two films each day, sources at the Israeli consulate here today informed.
