Recognising the need for critical debate on film aesthetics, EXPERIMENTA, India’s first international festival for experimental cinema was founded in 2003 by Shai Heredia in Bombay, where it ran annually from 2003-2006. EXPERIMENTA moved to Bangalore and became a biennial in 2007. Through the biennial we support and promote moving image art work that extends the boundaries of genre and form. In 2017, we celebrated our 10th edition. Ultimately, EXPERIMENTA is focussed on engaging with the large and growing community of moving image artists in India and across the world who share similar creative and socio political concerns.
