The 1st Annual OSU Bollywood Film Festival, "Women in Bollywood: Tradition and Transition," will be held on Friday, November 8th, 5:30 PM - 11:30 PM and Saturday, November 9th, 12:00 PM - 11:30 PM.

As India's cinematic influence spreads throughout the world, and as interest in the culture and art of India increases, we believe the time has come to anchor these broad currents in the OSU community. The film festival will provide us with a window into how South Asian film represents women and women's roles.  We believe the film selection will demonstrate the chronological shaping, transformation, and representation of the experiences of South Asian women and the changing ways in which women both on the Bollywood screen and behind it have told their stories.

In addition to the film screenings, there will be a keynote address by Wendy Singer, Roy T. Wortman Distinguished Professor of History, Kenyon College.
The address will be followed by a panel of Wendy Singer, Abhijit VardeMytheli Sreenivas, and Andrew Phillip, with Ila Nagar moderating.
