9th - 13th November, 2022

Inspired by the positive feedback from our 2020 online documentary film festival organised during the lockdown, Emami Art now moves a step forward with an Experimental Film Festival scheduled from 9th to 13th November, 2022. In this festival we shall present out-of-the-box films that re-define the language of cinema, whether in the narrative, aesthetic or technological terms. The festival will be a part of the EA Locus in Focus programme, aiming to bridge the gap between central and peripheral practices in contemporary art.

With EAEFF we are trying to create an intimate network with the local makers and the audience. In the debut year of the festival, we are interested to show a versatile range of avant-garde films, distributed in various categories.

Selected by a panel of eminent jury, we will screen fifteen films from east and northeast India in the competitive category. At the end of the festival two films from this section will be awarded for their excellence.

Venturing further into the nuances, we have three curated sections featuring noteworthy works in the experimental genre. Along with the screening, these sections are designed to create a discursive space that we hope will spur new conversations around the topic. Moreover, we have two special screenings and talk sessions by eminent figures in the field.
