Kala ghoda Art Festival 2013


Cinema for Change

“The cinema substitutes for our gaze a world more in harmony with our desires.”  - André Bazin

 Is cinema an art we ask? Should it be entertaining or message serving? Should it appeal to masses or entice cults? Should it let us escape to a fantasy or guide us to realize certain realities? In essence cinema but mirrors the many facets of the society. At KalaGhoda Arts Festival this year come and experience cinema across genres and timelines. The program will span across four beautiful venues - Coomaraswamy Hall, MAX Mueller Bhavan, BNHS, Gallery Beyond.

Our thematic for the 2013 festival is 'CINEMA FOR CHANGE'. Be part of and join our facebook community.
