Panel Discussion During 25 years of Netpac Asia, New Delhi


On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of NETPAC, NETPAC India, in collaboration with India International Centre, New Delhi and with the support of UNESCO, New Delhi, held a series of film screenings of NETPAC Award winning films at the India International Centre (IIC). Various films awarded by NETPAC, titles such as Asghar Farhadi’s About Elly, Garin Nugroho’s A Poet, Hiroshi Toda’s Summer Kyoto, Wang Xiaoshuai’s 11 Flowers, Mahdi Fleifel’s A World Not Ours and Reis Celik’s Night of Silence, among others, were screened as part of the programme. The screenings were followed by a discussion between the audience and the filmmakers. A panel discussion titled Celebrating 25 Years of NETPAC: The Rise of Asian Cinema, was also held at IIC. Panellists included Aruna Vasudev, President NETPAC with NETPAC award-winning filmmakers, Jeffrey Jeturian, Yeo Joon-han, Swarna Mallawarachchi, Jahnu Barua and Anup Singh, alongwith UNESCO representative and longtime supporter of NETPAC’s efforts, Moi Chiba. Aruna Vasude helped trace the history of NETPAC from its genesis in 1990: when UNESCO asked Cinemaya, an Asian Film Quarterly run by Aruna Vasudev - to organise a conference on Asian Cinema. This conference was attended by 25 participants from Asia, Europe, USA and Australia and it led to the creation of the International Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema – NETPAC. Posters of the events organised by NETPAC over the years were showcased in the foyer of the theatre, alongwith other printed materials and memorabilia connected to NETPAC events. We also displayed the various publications supported by NETPAC.

Obituary

Abbas Kiarostami

(22nd July 1940 - 4th July 2016)


Many of us at NETPAC also knew the man. And we all have our stories. Elegant, in the real sense of the word. Reserved, yes. Generous, also. In the extreme. He was always generous in his support of foreign film scholars and programmers. But more importantly, we all witnessed his support of new and indie filmmakers. And how many films carry a credit to his generous sharing of stories … We are all the richer for this.. Read More...
