KIFF is the only film festival in the country where local films are screened in Tapra Talkies. These Tapara talkies are made of tarpaulin and bamboo-balls. Earlier, when there was no multiplex or theatres, people used to enjoy films in Tapara talkies. Therefore, to continue this tradition, KIFF films are also shown in Tapara talkies.
