Cine Darbaar is a non-profit welfare society has been engaged in promoting cinema in India and Indian films internationally. Its vision lies in programming and curating films with the purpose of taking cinema seriously in our country by developing sensibilities through exposure to good cinema.

Cine Darbaar’s focus lies in making a good platform for education in cinema in India. Hence it has been organizing workshops for all demographics in India and provides opportunities to those who lack the accessibility to learn about the medium.


Venue: Film City, Marwah Studios, Sec 16-A, Noida

Duration of the workshop: 12 Days

Dates: 24th May to 3rd June 2010


The Cinedarbaar Summer Film Camp basis its activities upon the belief that the children are not provided with enough opportunities or outlets for the expression of their creative, intellectual or social beliefs – and with the oncoming of the digital media and its utilization in the process of filmmaking, children can now be enabled to produce their own films, which will be their personal documents of expression, articulation and communication. These digital films they make will be the modern day versions of yesteryear’s personal diary.

Cinema education is not a part of school curriculum, and by introducing the students to the intricacies of filmmaking, the workshop will provide them with a chance to explore their creativity and apply their talent to something productive.READ MORE
