Kahaani, which is directed by Sujoy Ghosh, is about a pregnant woman in search for her missing husband in the city of Kolkata, India, during a festival. It will screen at Village 4 Cinemas in Lautoka at 7:50pm.
"We have amazing world class films scheduled for the first week of the film festival in centres around Fiji," Fiji National University's UniStudio director Ravi Malik said.
"This is definitely one for the whole family because we have a huge selection of films that will fit each member of the household."
At the FNU Ba, Lautoka and Nadi campuses, Three Idiots and Kashmi Ki Kali will be screened at 7pm.
"There are no repeat shows and all screenings are free of charge. However, entry is on first come first serve basis so seats are limited," Mr Malik added.
