Currently involved in the four year Curatorial Project in association with the India Foundation for the Arts and funded by the Jamsetji Tata Trust, Katha Centre for Film Studies (KCFS) is an institution under Katha, a Delhi-based community-welfare organization and publishing house.
Since its inception, KCFS has actively involved young people from the city of Mumbai in its activities and film festivals. Besides organizing regular screenings at educational and cultural institutions, KCFS has encouraged young minds to think about film, critically and carefully, and created spaces where they can present films to a wider public.
