What is It?

The Urban Lens Festival, hosted by the Indian Institute for Human Settlements {IIHS}, is a three-day film festival. Back for its third edition, the festival screens non-fiction films exploring different facets of an urban city environment – be they political, socio economic or cultural.

Who is It for?

Filmmakers, students, and general lovers of cinema. If you love the medium of film, the city, or are just eager to learn, this is the festival for you.

Why Should I Go for It?

This celebration of urban cinema will not only include a ton of films to watch, but a series of talks and panels {by academics and industry professionals} examining context and aesthetics of the films, the city and its citizens. With over 20 film screenings, including Indian, international, animation and student works, the Urban Lens Festival covers a wide range of cinematic form and influences.

Anything Else?

Some of the Indian talent will include Mira Nair’s India Cabaret, Rahul Roy’s The Factory, Ruchir Joshi’s My Rio, My Tokio and Paromita Vohra’s Where’s Sandra?.
