The growth of cinema world over has been deeply influenced by different forms of urbanization. The Urban Lens Film Festival 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 urbanization 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.
Like previous editions, the festival will highlight the politics and concerns around cities as well as further diverse discourses around film practices and forms and its intrinsic relationship to the city.
