Film

The graduation from theatre to film not only brings in technology but the creativity of resource and execution. Kuch Khaas believes in and encourages ideas and social commentary within communities. Films have the power to express a culture’s ideals and shape them. Art, especially film, is important to us because it gives us the ability to form lasting human connections by letting us share our experiences with each other. These connections continue to last as a part of our history and expression, a history Kuch Khaas continues to value, promote and most certainly be a part of.

KK holds film and documentary screenings that cover a vast range of socially relevant topics, to play our part in raising awareness and knowledge about issues and creative efforts by professionals and amateurs alike.

Programmes such as Filmi Shilmi, Screen My Shorts and Kuch Khaas Productions bring the Kuch Khaas community the oppurtunities to not only be a part of history, but stay up to date on the efforts of documentary film makers and lesser known, off-mainstream productions, including in house productions.
