The Auroville Film Festival champions and supports filmmakers, within and outside Auroville, who are change-makers impacting the world. Since its conception in 2009 as a biennial event, the festival has showcased 4 categories of films: three of them focus around Auroville, its bioregion & Pondicherry and the fourth category features a curated selection of international films that develop the theme of human unity. The festival is scheduled to take place from January 18-23, 2022 and will screen up to 50 hours of films in this duration.
The Auroville dream is that all art is equally accessible to all and no one is limited by social or financial position. Accordingly, AVFF is fully non-commercial in nature and open to all, free of charge. With three screening venues, including one outdoor venue, outdoor music performances in the evenings, a simultaneous food festival, and a discussion area we attract large audiences and enable an exciting festival ambience.
Our goal is to raise 6 lakh rupees to cover expenses associated with organizing the 7th edition of Auroville Film Festival. The funds collected shall be disbursed through the Auroville Unity Fund to the Auroville Film Festival. A breakdown of expenses shall be shared once the festival concludes.
