Don't miss this festival!

Urban Lens

Dec 2 - 3 2017, 11 AM - 9 PM

The fourth edition of the Urban Lens Film Festival comes to Mumbai for the first time at Godrej India Culture Lab on December 2-3. The annual festival that is organized by Indian Institute of Human Settlements remains committed to the idea that cinema offers a space for reflection and a chance to re-examine the cities we live in.

In keeping with the mission of the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) to engage with cities of the Global South, the festival explores cinematic narratives that emerge from countries such as India, Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Egypt, Jordan and South Africa. These 28 films have been selected from the 1600 entries that were received from 102 countries!

These fiction, non-fiction and animation films mirror a cinematic truth about cities, framing them beyond their skylines by teasing out individual/collective stories and experiences of people from around the world.

The festival travels to Mumbai after successful editions in Bangalore and Delhi that were held in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan.
