WORKSHOP HARKAT COLLECTIVE
Harkat is a boutique arts studio, film production company, artists analog film lab and an alternative performance space and theater in Mumbai. It is a collective engaged in making handmade films, installations, expanded cinema performances and running the 16mm film festival for the past 6 years. One of the center-stones of the lab is ‘India on film’ - an attempt to find an Indian voice in the world of ‘experimental’ and ‘avant-garde’ film. A proposition of the replacement of the word experimental with sanskrit ‘prayog’. Harkat regularly hosts workshops, screenings and residencies with a view to make the medium more accessible and to function as an incubator for new ideas on film. It is an intended counter culture to the very commercial industry work which makes Harkat sustainable and possible.
