On the occasion of our 25th anniversary we organised India’s first International Puppet Film Festival. PuppetOscope is a bouquet of films that “Hero” the puppet and is carefully curated so that it generates an alternative platform for both the creators and the audience of puppetry.
The first edition of the Festival presented twenty one puppet films from eleven countries from around the world and India in three categories namely films for children, fiction films and documentary films. An accompanying exhibition showcased shadow puppets, the evolution of the moving pictures from shadow puppets to films and puppet sets and real puppets from films at the India International Center in New Delhi.
It provided a platform to discuss the current trends in puppetry, the challenges faced by the art form and artists and created a future space for the genre of puppet films in India.
