After a successful run in Bengaluru in September earlier this year, the fifth edition of the Urban Lens Film Festival will take place between 16 – 18 November 2018 in New Delhi in association with the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan.

The growth of cinema world over has been deeply influenced by different forms of urbanisation. 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 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.

Like previous editions, 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. “On Practice” is an in-depth conversation with film practitioner Sameera Jain, who will take the audience through the process of unbundling her craft. The festival will also feature two public lectures, one by Ranjani Mazumdar titled “The Cinematic Slum” and the other by Ritesh Uttamchandani who will talk about his journey as a photographer though his work.

We hope that these films, 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.
