Cinema and Social Change – South Asia hosted by the Institute of Media and Creative Industries, Loughborough University London.

From the establishment of the Film Divisions unit in India to communicate the ideas of a new developing Nehruvian India to the recent ban on Pakistani actors in India, films seem to constantly occupy a central position in South Asian politics. This one-day workshop will bring together senior and junior colleagues, as well as film practitioners, working on cinema in South Asia to promote a reflection on the role of films in social change.

Participants:

Monia Acciari (De Montfort University): “Film Festivals and South Asia: Curating India”

Munsur Ali (London Bengali Film Festival, Limelight Film Awards): “Representation and Identity through Cinema”.

Giulia Battaglia (Universite’ Paris III Sorbonne Nouvelle): “Between Cultural Performance and Cultural Activism: Contemporary Documentary Film Festivals in India”

Ashvin Devasundaram (Queen Mary University London): “Cinematic Contestations: Indian Independent Film as a Political Medium”

J. Daniel Luther (SOAS London): "Those Three Words": Karan Johar, Normativity, and Class in Bollywood.
