Harkat is a boutique international arts studio. We create and curate stories and experiences in multiple mediums. We love film more though.



Harkat is an international boutique arts studio with a passion for film, new media, community art spaces and contemporary art. Based in Mumbai & Berlin, Harkat takes many forms and identities across disciplines. At the core, we are a collective of passionate storytellers from diverse cultural, business and creative backgrounds. Our core business and expertise lies in film. We make web content, marketing content, short films and digital commercials. We also do behind the scenes documentation for Hindi language feature films. We also have our own practice in the medium of photochemical film and host the 16mm film festival every year.

Working with Harkat is an experience. We like to engage with our clients meaningfully for each project, to understand their goals and visions and then make them our own. All our clients directly interact and work closely with the artist in charge, and are encouraged to participate and contribute to the process of making videos.

Harkat is also an alternative performance space in Mumbai, having hosted more than 500 shows in the mediums of music, theatre, dance, movement and films. We are a home to anyone who doesn't fit traditional proscenium theatres and institutions. (click here to go to micro-site).

We also curate experiences and exhibits. You can learn more about the various festivals, curatorial adventures and other exciting things by exploring the space website and the website. Also , click here to go to instagram.

We support the new, unheard, upcoming, exciting, cutting edge, the political, the forgotten, nostalgic, melancholic, soul stirring, the beautiful & more. And that's what Harkat is. Harkat.
