Voices from the Fringe – Documentary Film Festival-14th to 23rd Nov. 2008
Nandini Bedi, Festival Director
The idea is to focus on Indian documentary films from the geographical, economic, cultural, religious and political fringes of a society that has global economic and political aspirations. These voices are as varied as they are fresh and articulate. They are counterpoints to the more visible and audible side of the new emerging India. They are connected, touched by and changed by the India with the global aspirations. In turn, how do they connect, change and contribute to the India we see in the spotlight?
This Film Festival is supported by the HIVOS-NCDO Cultuurfonds.
Twenty Seven films will be screened at the Balie, in Amsterdam along with discussions and debates with filmmakers from India in attendance. Nandini’s film‘Notes on Man Capture’ is also on the program followed by another film ‘Tales from the Margins’ and a discussion on Northeast India.
