Delhi celebrates the season of bloom and the University of Delhi its ‘flick season’. As colleges host their film festivals, students and cinema enthusiasts alike are being spoilt for choice. Here’s HT City’s pick: Kirori Mal College’s annual film festival — Upper Stall.

Upper Stall 2009, its theme being Independent Cinema in India, began yesterday and is a mélange of students’ creativity and the best of poetry cinema. Isha Handa, President of the KMC Film Society, says, “This is the second year of the festival and this time, we wanted to introduce a unique genre of cinema. That is why we thought of poetry cinema and invited the group Sadho to be a part of the festival.”

Sadho, a voluntary organisation that promotes poetry cinema, is now screening selected films from across the globe at the festival. Since poetry films are an average four-minutes in length, several movies are being screened. Today, the last day of the film fest, best of student cinema will also be screened at the college. No entry fee.
