New Delhi: Inspired by the positive feedback from 2020 online documentary film festival organised during the lockdown, Emami Art now moves a step forward with an Experimental Film Festival scheduled from November 9th to 13th,2022.
In this year’s festival, out-of-the-box films will be presented that redefine the language of cinema, spanning across narrative, aesthetic, and technological domains.

The Emami Art Experimental Film Festival 2022 attempts to create an intimate network with the local makers and audience.

Selected by a panel of eminent jury, fifteen films from east and north-east India would be screened in the Competitive Category.

Alongside the screenings, the sections are designed to create a discursive space that will spur new riveting conversations around the topics.

An exhibition with absorbing insights into filmmaking would also be held onsite at the Emami Art Kolkata.
The film festival will consist of a competitive category of Films, 3 curated sections and 2 special screenings to be held over the 5-day period.
