September 29 to October 3
A festival of films from Auroville and about Auroville
AUROVILLE FILM FESTIVAL 2011
Situated in Auroville, an international township dedicated to Human Unity, the Auroville Film Festival is a biennial international film festival dedicated to furthering the ideal of Human Unity in the world.
Rather than imposing this theme on filmmakers, we choose to create categories that manifest the spirit of Auroville and initiate films that generate discussion around the image of Auroville.
The first Auroville Film Festival was in September 2009 and featured films in 3 categories:
- Films made by Aurovilians/residents of the bioregion and films shot in Auroville by guests of Auroville.
- Films made about Auroville and/or its bioregion.
- Films made by students of Aurovilian schools or students of schools in the bioregion.
The Auroville Film Festival '11 will have an additional category: Films on the theme of Human Unity
- This festival is conceived and organised by the Multimedia Centre, Auroville.
This is the updated program of the festival
