Event Description : Regional Film Festival: New Genres in Indian Cinema

While Bollywood dominates the discourse on Indian Cinema, there is also a genre of “good, middle road cinema” emerging in Indian language films – films that are efficiently made and are frequently favourites in festival circuits. Regional cinema continues to flourish, catering to its own audiences, occasionally being screened outside. Due to the commercial interests of distribution, these innovative, cinematic and rooted films hardly get to be seen outside their language regions. The films in this selection are those that are heard about, but not easy to access. Spanning the last two years, they introduce filmmakers working in regional languages who also have a need to meet audiences from newer constituencies, to build the profile of an “Indian Cinema”.
