South Asian Women's Cinema: Between Festivals and Streaming
Vitali, V. 2023. South Asian Women's Cinema: Between Festivals and Streaming. NO NIIN Magazine. (16).
European and US festivals have played a pivotal role in the global circulation of South Asian films. But their contribution has also been marked by questionable priorities: the near-exclusive promotion of Indian films or of films that speak to European and North American cinemas’ aesthetic affinities. With the new millennium, festivals began to embark on film production. How has this practice impacted South Asian filmmakers—women filmmakers in particular—and the visibility of their work? What role do video online platforms play in this context, as distributors and producers?
