Speaker bio

Born in the Himalaya, Graduated in Physics from Ramjas College, Delhi University I did my masters in International business from the Delhi School of Economics.

I started FILMBOOTH in 2008 along with fellow co founders as an outcome of filmmaking pursuit which needed a space of its own. An initiative to set up the short films scene in India, Filmbooth promotes filmmakers and short-format visual storytellers, whose stylistic diversity challenges our preconceptions of cinema.

After curating 5 International Festivals I feel that the journey has just started. I also worked in the corporate sector for almost 5 years before calling it off to follow a road less travelled. I have been awarded “Young Manager” by St Stephens College. I was also awarded a fellowship by “Unbox Festival” supported by the British Council, for digital activism work related to the MDG’s. As part of the fellowship I worked with Breakthrough a US based NGO to make a viral Short Film taking the “Bell Bajao” campaign to the youth. My personal interests lies in Art, Photography, Yoga, Traveling and watching Theatre.

Filmbooth is a short films organization, credited for opening up multiple platforms for the Indie filmmakers. With over 5 independently organized festivals, 500 + films screened and 300 filmmakers exhibited it’s a pioneer in the short films space in India. Worked with esteemed organizations like United Nations, TERI, British Council, The Climate Project, IYCN and more, Filmbooth works along with the short filmmaker’s community.
