The Habitat Film Club was started in March 2000. A Member of the Federation of Film Societies of India, Habitat Film Club promises film buffs a rich fare of meaningful and entertaining films from across the world, Masterclasses and interactive sessions with Directors, Producers, Actors, Retrospectives and much more. Members are exposed to the wealth and variety of cinema - from the early classics to the works of the new filmmakers as well as refreshing departures in mainstream cinema.

    DOC FILM - Journey to Utopia (Denmark/ Danish/2020/88 mins)Dir. Erlend E. Mo.The enlightened, forward-thinking Mo family lead a picture-perfect life on their farm in Norway. But recently, climate anxiety and a fear for what kind of planet will be left to their three children is keeping them up at night. Taking a giant leap of faith, the family decides to take action and move to 'Permatopia’: a brand new self-sufficient, organic farming cooperative in Denmark. But will green community living really be a sustainable solution for a family of five headstrong individualists, each with their own very different expectations and dreams? A heart-warming and brutally honest film about one family’s attempt to make a real difference under the shadow of climate change. Collab. The Royal Danish Embassy, New Delhi.

    DOC FILM - 70/30 (Denmark/ Danish/2021/98 mins) Dir. Phie Ambo. In the spring of 2019 thousands of young Danes took to the streets. They ditched school to demonstrate for the climate, they mobilized their parents and grandparents and demanded climate action NOW! When the national election came later that year, it was evident that the climate needed to be a central part of the political agenda to win. Now, it is time for the new government to put action behind their words. Is it possible for the politicians, citizens and the industry to collaborate and make Denmark a green pioneer country – or will the ambitions fade as reality shows its ugly head?Collab.
