Culture at Lightcube

As a cultural organisation the fundamental need is to have a workplace that is stimulating, enriching and inspiring. Lightcube provies an environment that is congenial and supportive of an individual's disposition. Our team works in flexible timings with the aim to maximise potential and performance, we challenge and support each other to elevate the richness of our ideas and to enhance the outcomes of our projects. It is possible for you to collaborate with our team from anywhere, most of our team members / collaborators are located in different cities.

We work out of a small apartment, sharing available resources, we do not have cubicles or separate spaces and everyone is more than approachable. We have a common kitchen and all members lunch together while talking about a range of subjects and ideas that keep bubbling inside us. 

We frequent cultural spots around the city reviewing events, interviewing filmmakers or showcasing our products, on Fridays we have inhouse movie screenings and we also have the occassional BYOB parties at Lightcube.

Working with Lightcube has been advantageous to me in more ways than one. One it added more perspective to my profession of being a brand strategist but more importantly,it instilled in me an awareness to understand institutions,systems and organizations that make up our reality(something that we almost take for granted otherwise).
In the projects that i have worked with Lightcube,i've found that they have the courage to take up bold, meaningful initiatives that get to the root of the cause as opposed to shiny distractions that just skim the surface.
The only downside is they may be late for their meetings. So make sure to carry the paper or a book with you.

Working at Lightcube has been one of the most enriching experiences, where your passion for cinema is valued more than the knowledge you possess about it. The titles at  Lightcube's screenings may seem obscure, but the pre and post-screening discussions facilitated by its co-founders truly live up to the aim of the film society, that of making cinema — and thereby, art — accessible to all, an endeavour further strengthened by the Dhenuki Cinema Project. Furthermore, Lightcube’s publications, Projectorhead and Umbra, are treasure troves of writing on film and visual culture that go beyond mere reviews; they provide an excellent window to the world of cinema through a critical and journalistic lens.

Whether you are a fan of the avant-garde or the campy, Lightcube has room for the entire spectrum of cinephiles.

In my association with Lightcube for more than a year before I moved to US for graduate studies, I had the opportunity to work on coordinating Dhenuki Project as well as immerse myself into an enriching learning experience. Traveling to the hinterland for film screenings as part of Dhenuki, capturing varied narratives of people, delving into their cultures and social lives left me more inquisitive every time. I could see the enormous potential of this project especially when I reflected on it through the lens of my scholarly discipline, sociology. 
Lightcube had also been a very inclusive space for me. Each film screening be it a private screening, animation film festival or art festival, each discussion that went along with it provided me freedom to carve out a space for myself. I especially cherish my conversations with Suraj and Anuj at multiple occasions about deeper underpinnings of a film and or in general, social discourse.
This objective of engaging with diverse outlooks through a visual culture beyond mainstream landscape makes Lightcube distinct, a much-needed insurgent in the field, as a sociologist would say.
Hoping to connect with Lightcube again soon!
