Sundance Institute announced today that FILM FORWARD: Advancing Cultural Dialogue, a program that promotes cultural dialogue through independent documentary and narrative film, is travelling from March 15 to 22, 2012 to five locations in India: Mumbai, New Delhi, Aligarh, Gurgaon and Noida. Mumbai Mantra Media Ltd and the American Center in New Delhi, in collaboration with Taj Enlighten Film Society and Whistling Woods International, will present the FILM FORWARD program which includes 10 films, filmmaker appearances and workshops at multiple venues in the five cities. All FILM FORWARD screenings are free of charge for University students and the general public.

FILM FORWARD is an initiative of Sundance Institute and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. A full schedule of FILM FORWARD screenings and events in India along with a complete list of outreach partners is available at http://www.sundance.org/filmforward/destination/india-2012/.

“It is exciting to expand our relationships with the vibrant community in India as we mount this multi faceted cinematic program,” said Keri Putnam, Executive Director of Sundance Institute. “Together with our FILM FORWARD collaborators at Mumbai Mantra and the American Center in New Delhi, we hope to continue building cultural bridges which encourage discourse, the creation of new ideas and a meaningful cross-cultural dialogue.”

Filmmakers Asif Kapadia (Senna) and Linda Goldstein Knowlton (Somewhere Between) will be in attendance to participate in Q&As, discussions, workshops and meet-and-greet events with the different communities in the select destinations in India (complete schedule attached).
