ABOUT US

Lightcube is a cultural initiative based out of New Delhi. Its efforts revolve around the shaping and examination of prevalent discourse around various forms of moving images. The group remains devoted to the diagnosis of contemporary methods of film exhibition and to the dissemination of culture beyond its mainstream-specified boundaries and metropolitan focus. To pursue this ambition, Lightcube has organised close to two hundred and fifty single screenings across ten states in the four years of its existence.

The initiative also collaborates with various cultural institutions and activist groups to forge different systems of thought and inquiry, which are then presented through a set of publications, festivals and workshops. Lightcube has collaborated in the past with such prestigious festivals as the Delhi International Arts Festival, Eyemyth Unbox Festival, the Centenary of Indian Cinema Celebration, the Dharamshala International Film Festival, The Inner Path, Peace Builders' Festival and with such institutions as the Instituto Cervantes, Japan Foundation, Finnish Embassy in New Delhi, Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Satyajit Ray Archives for the Preservation of Satyajit Ray Films, NETPAC, Indian Institute of Mass Communication and Ziro Festival of Music.

Lightcube also organises The Dhenuki Cinema Project, a research-based, participatory, cinema outreach programme that seeks to show films in villages and small towns of the country, with the eventual aim of enabling the residents to film their own narratives.
