By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, April 17 - Assamese film Xhoihobote Dhemalite (Rainbow Fields), directed by Bidyut Kotoky, has been nominated in eight categories at the Love International Film Festival (LIFF) in Los Angeles, US.

The LIFF was founded by Ata Servati, a noted poet, playwright, actor and filmmaker in 2016. The festival has been able to create a niche for itself in a short time. Former US First Ladies, Michelle Obama and Laura Bush, were honoured in the first year as �Ambassadors of Love and Peace� for their work with children.

Xhoihobote Dhemalite has been nominated for Best Feature Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay � Bidyut Kotoky, Best Actor � Nakul Vaid, Best Actress � Dipannita Sharma, Best Supporting Actor � Victor Banerjee, Best Cinematography � Satya Prakash Rath and Best Score � Anurag Saikia. The awards will be announced on July 7 during a ceremony at Ahrya Fine Arts in Beverly Hills.

�It is indeed an honour. The recognition is especially satisfying as it has come from a festival whose goal is to �bring the world closer together and promote love and healing through cinema�,� said director Kotoky.

The film, based on true events, narrates the psychological trauma children went through during the Assam agitation in the 1980s. The film also features Naved Aslam, Nipon Goswami and Nikumoni Barua.

In 2017, it won the Best Foreign Film Award at the Hollywood International Cine Fest.
