Sikh Art and Film Festival – November 13-15, 2009

Posted in Art, Events, Film by Pippa on November 7, 2009

Sikh Lens is proud to offer its inaugural—and independent—Sikh Arts & Film Festival.  The Festival celebrates Sikh culture and heritage, and will offer a variety of avenues for contributors to share their talent.

Get ready for a sumptuous treat that will light up all senses with a diverse assortment of films, books, art, performance pieces, and music that is “Sikh-centric.”  To mark the 25th anniversary of the anti-Sikh riots of 1984, we will have a special dedication with rare photographs and independent documentaries on 1984 riots; and lectures and a panel discussion by esteemed speakers from around the world.  The festival premieres stirring documentaries, book signings by notable authors, creations from world-renowned artists, and a special event showcasing youth performing music, poetry, rap, and everything else their creative imagination can conjure.  We want to prove that “Sikhs’ Got Talent.”  You will also get a chance to take a piece of our culture home through a silent auction.
