About

Our Vision

Filmtantra- The Film Appreciation and Filmmaking Society of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College endeavours to make meaningful films and bring the best of independent cinema to our audience in an attempt to break barriers of language, form and subject matter in storytelling. We aim to familiarize student filmmakers with engaging films and their makers in order to make filmmaking a relatively more viable form of expression of art.

Initiatives

CineTalkies

Cinetalkies - A podcast by Filmtantra is started with an aim to bring people closer to the indie cinema and their filmmakers. In this podcast, student filmmakers talk to professionals about their experience of working within the industry. Every episode features a new guest talking about their perspective on cinema, its changing forms, their films, what one must know before becoming a filmmaker, and answers to other such questions that a student filmmaker might be looking for.

Between The Frames

'Between the Frames' is Filmtantra's endeavour to introduce independent and offbeat cinema into the daily lives of a young audience. Through our reviews, we aim to start a discussion on films that are making rounds across all the major festivals in the country. We compile a list of all the screenings taking place in the capital and regularly post pieces on trends in cinema.

What keeps us inspired?

" The characters in my films try to live honestly and make the most of the lives they’ve been given. I believe you must live honestly and develop your abilities to the full. People who do this are the real heroes. "

– Akira Kurosawa

" I couldn’t sleep one night and I was sitting in my office and I realized that I was an independent filmmaker. "

– Darren Aronofsky

" A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later. "

– Stanley Kubrick
