Urban Lens Film Festival 2018 | Mumbai
Join us for the #IIHSin #UrbanLens Film Festival in Mumbai from 7 - 8 December 2018! Entry is free.
The growth of cinema world over has been deeply influenced by different forms of urbanisation. The #UrbanLens #FilmFestival hopes to excavate aspects of this symbiotic relationship especially in countries of the Global South. Asia, Latin America, and Africa have cinematic traditions that reflect their histories and complexities. The story of urbanisation in these countries have distinct trajectories as compared to countries of the North, and the festival attempts to bring together these myriad films that argue and are in conversation with each other. The festival will screen films from various genres such as fiction, non-fiction, animation, and experimental films, made over a wide span of the last sixty years.
The festival hopes to further diverse discourses around film practices and forms and its intrinsic relationship to the city. Post-screening discussions with the director open up an interaction space for the audience, bringing in a multiplicity of perspectives that make the experience of community viewing richer. This remains one of the most important aspects of the festival.
We hope that these dialogues and exchanges will highlight the politics and concerns around cities and generate a new meaning of the role cinema plays in shaping our understanding of urban issues.
The Mumbai edition is organised in collaboration with India Culture Lab.
