Delhi Doc Festival : A JOURNEY CALLED INDIA

From journeys that take us through the streets of Pushkar and make us wonder by its majestic myths and marvelous mysteries, to those for which the filmmakers rampantly roamed, on an unreserved compartment of Indian Railways. From films showing us the lime-lights, subcultures and blatant urban transformations of megacities, to those listening the echoes of lost songs between the barbed wires, confiscated in Kashmir. From “An Insignificant Man” rising amidst a political turmoil, to Sex experts counselling couples and Martyrs of Marriage seeking advice or justice.

It’s a film festival which will bring some of the most appreciated, awarded and inspiring documentaries to the audience.

If cinema is our most powerful art form, we at Filmbooth would say that documentary is both its beating heart and its conscience. It holds a mirror to our society and it holds our conscience to account. It is more important than ever that we come together to speak up for and support those filmmakers — here and around the world — who bring us these essential stories.

Documentaries today are not the way it used to be, they are shot, conceptualised and presented more cinematically. At Filmbooth we have seen the trend and hence curated these amazing films showing some of the most mysterious stories, journeys, and stories from across India.
