Habitat Film Club


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. It also aims to facilitate for members insights into the history of cinema and awareness on contemporary trends. The film club's two standalone annual festivals, namely Habitat International Film Festival in March celebrating critically acclaimed International Cinema, and Habitat Film Festival in May showcasing award winning Pan Indian Cinema, have become indispensable forums for film lovers in the city.
