Celebrate Cinema @ Whistling Woods International

We, at Whistling Woods International have always wanted to create an avenue whereby we are able to provide access to the realities of the filmmaking process to the common film lover and enthusiast. Further, we have always wanted that the vast campus & high-tech infrastructure we have built, the unique hands-on curriculum and the laudable faculty, guest & visiting faculty body that we have, is accessible to film lovers & enthusiasts.

We decided to use the opportunity of the completion of a 100 years of Indian Cinema with 2 large open-for-all events namely ‘Cinema 100’ & ‘Cinema 100 The Next Wave’. Looking at the response & feedback of the attendees, we continued this ‘open-for-all’ event as an annual affair, calling it the ‘Celebrate Cinema’, and have witnessed immense success since 2012.

Celebrate Cinema is a platform to rub shoulders with the best and learn about techniques in Indian cinema over two action-packed days. It is an open-to-all event, for all cinema lovers, aspiring filmmakers, media, design and fashion professionals, where they will have an opportunity to attend Workshops, screenings, various contests and celebrity Panel Discussions.
