Framing Interdisciplinarity is a film festival on environment, society and development. It is based on the concept that cinema renders simplicity to complex interdisciplinary themes, making them vivid and understandable. The aim of this film festival is to help students understand how to unpack various interdisciplinary themes embedded in popular cinema. This in turn aims to inspire students to explore the use of story telling tools to communicate complex nature-society issues.
Given the fractious nature of politics globally, it is increasingly becoming important to engage with popular media to reach out to wider audiences. This event recognises the power of the cinematic form and its transformative potential and the need for nurturing a closer relationship with academic discourse.
The screenings are followed by a panel discussion involving academicians and practitioners, which aims to decode and discuss the key elements of the film. A moderated Q&A session after the panel discussion will allow students and other attendees to tap into the experience and opinion of the panelists.
All films will be shown in Room 2.13 at the Institute of Geography on Drummond Street.
