The audition for the 5th edition of FFACE calendar happened on 9th of October 2017 at Galaxy, The Park.
Out of thousands of registrations and two rounds of trial the top 100 participants appeared before the celebrity judges. Actor Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Actress Payel Sarkar, Director Sudeshna Roy, Producer Shyam Sunder Dey & Fashion Designer Indroneel Mukherjee selected the “Kanchana Next Top 30” at the final auditions. This year's turn out of participants for the audition was so good that the judges were confused to select the candidates, as a result the judges selected extra three (30+3) candidates for the next phase.
This set of finalists would enter the rigorous workshop and grooming phase with the fface team and industry experts starting post Diwali. Over the course of next 30 days with various activities and competition, the top 12 Calendar Models would be selected for the Fface Calendar 2018, Edition 5.
Speaking at the occasion, Mr Neil Roy, founder and director of Fface said, “Every year we try to bring more value addition to this format to ensure the budding talents have more exposure from this platform. We have already tied up with the Miss India Organization as official talent partner and successfully scouted talents for Miss India and Miss Diva 2017. Fface 2017 model Jessica Aron was judged as Miss Diva Kolkata and appeared for the national finale in Mumbai early this year. We are also commencing audition for Mr India 2017 as an exclusive talent partner, West Bengal, during mid of October 2017. Our further tie up with Max Emerging Star where one chosen candidate from Fface Calendar 2018 will appear in the east zone final in Bhubaneshwar and stand a chance to do workshops with Anupam Kher and Terence Lewis. One of the chosen candidate this year will also bag a role in Greentouch Entertainment’s forthcoming production apart from all the regular casting work we usually do for leading television and production houses in Kolkata.
