Dalit Film Festival at The New School, February 24
About the Dalit Film and Cultural Festival (DALIFF):
With the emergence of caste centric films in the mainstream Indian (also, in Nepal) film industry in recent years and its notable success has dawned upon the nu-genre of film making—the Dalit Cinema. Dalit Cinema is a newer technique to underscore the importance of art and creativity in upholding the human loving virtues simultaneously standing guard to fighting the ills of society.
In partnership with Barnard College, US Ambedkerites, India China Institute is hosting an International Dalit Film Festival in New York City on February 23 (at Columbia University) & February 24, 2019 at The New School. The primary aim is to advance critical dialogues about the experiences of Dalits and other oppressed groups in the film industry.
