Time Out says

From the 22nd to the 26th of January 2017, we will hold a film festival of 10 of Swarna’s most iconic films (including masterpieces of cinema such as Dadayama, Hansa Vilak, Suddhilage Kathawa, Sagara Jalaya) and will end the event with an evening honouring Swarna under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe. A 20-minute documentary film will be screened, two coffee table books will be launched and Swarna will be felicitated by peers within the industry for her epic contributions.
