Guru Lounge: Sunday Sessions – Chai and Chat

LIFF is pleased to present an afternoon of chai and chat. In the first of these sessions, we welcome the following people to talk briefly about their experience working in film and media from a range of disciplines including directing, producing, acting to more behind the scenes activities that help get films out into the world.

Director – Hammad Khan – ANIMA STATE, SLACKISTAN 
Director – Amit Biswas – THE BRIDGE
Director – Sarmad Masud – MY PURE LAND
Producer – Paromita Banerjee – THE BRIDGE
Actor – Waleed Akhtar – NIGHT BUS, THREE GIRLS
Agent – Nish Panchal – Curtis Brown

Following their introductions, there’ll be a short, sharp Q&A session for participants to gain further insights as we flow into an informal chat over chai and build what we hope will be a new network of people from South Asian backgrounds working in film today.

Guru Lounges are free events open to all for emerging talent working in film. To reserve your place please click HERE.
