About the Event

As we enter our sixth year of hosting the 16mm film festival, we recognize what makes the photochemical medium so special to us — it is rooted in play. It is an impression of flowers; a dance with light. It constantly merges the art and craft of making. Its tangibility makes room for deeply personal impressions. Its slowness changes time. 


Alluding to several films that have made it to our festival, and the qualities of the medium akin to flora, our programs this year are named after flowers (or notions of them). Fragile, tangible, photosensitive, seasonal, growth, windswept, of/for love & death, archiving - touch. 


This year we will be screening more than 50 films from over 10 countries, including five newly produced Ek-minute competition films, all the Indian submissions to straight8 2022, and an expanded cinema film performance by Harkat’s own. We also have veteran experimental filmmakers Richard and Diana Tuohy, all the way from Nanolab (Australia) visiting us and showcasing their analog works. So come join us for some incredible films and experiences!


Note: the festival will take place in-person at Harkat Studios in Mumbai.
