By NewsDesk • Published on May 6, 2012

The 12th Osian’s-Cinefan Film Festival will take place from 27 July to 5 August 2012 at Siri Fort Complex and Osianama at the Kila, New Delhi.

Osianama is a new museum on the arts and film which will be thrown open to the public on 15th August 2012.

‘The two years sabbatical was a wonderfully difficult period for all of us at Osian’s but it has made us stronger, wiser and even more idealistic in our efforts to build infrastructure and  continue to host one of the finest film festivals in the world,’ said Festival Director Indu Shrikent in a press statement.

Osian’s Cinefan Film Festival’s programme will showcase Asian, Arab and Indian Cinema with special emphasis on First Features and Short films.

The festival will introduce a new section called  ‘7.4’ on Environment films ‘which will be a precursor of a summit on natural and manmade heritage, which by 2013 will translate into a new film festival dedicated to this subject,’ as mentioned in the press statement.

In its 2012 edition, Osian’s Cinefan will pay tribute to film-maker Mani Kaul who had been the Creative Director at Osian’s since 2006 and was the Director General of the 11th Osian’s Cinefan Film Festival. Cinefan will institute the Mani Kaul Memorial Lecture.

Also as part of the festival related events, a three-day Summit on ‘Delhi: The Next Film City’ will be organized.
