KRITI FILM CLUB, based in New Delhi is an effort at placing thought-provoking cinema in a discussion group to enable debate, analysis and opinion making on social and development issues and human rights. Screening documentary films every month at our workplace in Alaknanda since the year 2000, the film club serves as a borrowing and buying space for such films from across the country. The film club is an independent initiative of KRITI: a development research, praxis and communication team and runs on contributions of filmmakers and our audience.
