Mrudula Saturday March 30, 2024

The first ArCuRea multievent program was organized by the Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute and held at its campus in Kolkata, India, in March 2024. ArCuRea, which stands for archive | curate | restore, was composed of a series of online conversations with international artists and critics, a colloquium on film archiving and restoration, several film screenings, including a festival of restored Indian masterpieces, and a cinema curation workshop.

In particular, the workshop gathered 20 participants out of 140 applicants from all around India, and from this crème de la crème, three were awarded—the best proposal and two special mentions.

For the first time, NETPAC bestowed the ArCuRea Best Curatorial Proposal Award in the name of the organization to support the growth of cutting-edge cinema curation in Asia and the Pacific. Film scholar and curator Patrick F. Campos represented NETPAC on the jury, and NETPAC’s joint president, Bina Paul, joined Patrick in handing the prizes to three awardees on 22 March.
