About the festival

The Harkat 16mm Film Festival has been conceived with a view of re-connecting with the cinematic medium through it’s celluloid history. It is organised by Harkat, an alternative arts space and a film production company based out of Versova, Mumbai.

This is the first time the festival is happening and it will supplemented by various activities like the production of single take 1 minute films on a 16mm camera for young film makers and talks around the history and magic of filming on celluloid.
