TAMPA - The Tampa International Film Festival, Friday, Feb. 3, through Saturday, Feb. 11, moves to February this year after three years of April runs.

Festival founder and director Rob Tregenza said the change is in response to requests from filmgoers.

Tregenza, professor of film and mass communications at The University of Tampa, and a well-known filmmaker in his own right, said that the schedule change, while important to note, should be little more than a footnote to an event with much bigger news.

A major retrospective of Indian master filmmaker Buddhadeb Dasgupta will be presented at the festival, along with his most recent feature, Kaalpurush (Memories in the Mist). Dasgupta is a well-known Bengali director, writer and producer. He will attend the festival and introduce his films.

Award-winning Canadian director Bernard Émond will attend the closing night of the festival, and will introduce his film, La Neuvaine (The Novena).

This yearıs festival presents the best of international cinema in major films from China, India, Spain, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Argentina, Peru and Canada.

In addition, the Education Channel will sponsor a sidebar on American independent cinema. This is the first time that the festival has programmed American independent films.

Major sponsors of the 2006 Tampa International Film Festival include The University of Tampa, UTıs John H. Sykes College of Business, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Education Channel.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for students, and $5 for seniors. A Gold Pass, which provides entrance to all screenings and events, is available for $200.
