An alternative to the big screen in Bengaluru
Bangalore Film Society is a collective of cineastes who explore through the medium of cinema, cultural politics and how it impacts and shapes the modern cultural practices, politics and social behaviour. Towards this, we organize regular film screenings and discussions on feature and documentary films from across the globe as well as organise film festivals and conferences on specific themes such as human rights, women’s rights, indigenous peoples rights, refugees, migration and displacement, water and environment, farming and food, and so on. Through these programs we attempt to connect the participants with cultural histories of ideas and desires of social transformations, contentious socio-cultural-political issues of our times as well as provide entertainment and aesthetic experience.
