For two decades, the Kriti Film Club has been screening documentaries and organising issue-based film festivals for diverse audiences without any funding. In early years, we would keep a 'gullaq' (piggy bank) available for audience to make a contribution when they came for a screening. 

When screening at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, our parent organisation, the Kriti team would set up a stall of handmade products sold under the brand 'Gestures' to recover atleast some travel costs for our team members. But this has never been able to support any of our time or even actual costs. 

During the 2020 lockdown, the Kriti Film Club offered documentary recommendations for 102 days, with everyday access to documentaries for change. aspires to make such thoughtprovoking cinema films and film festivals available for free. 

All of the above efforts have been taken up independently by us, as is this online platform

The only time when we have had some support is when a filmmaker or organisation decided to contribute for our efforts, and we are always looking for such collaborations either as curators or organisers of film screening/ festival events either offline or online.

As we take small, but ambitious steps and aspire to bring meaningful films and film festivals online, we need the support of our viewers, filmmakers and film producers. If you believe in our model, consider making a regular or one-off donation for us to continue and thrive as an independent and community-supported independent film screening platform.

Here is where you can make a contribution or get in touch on for doing more together.
