From creating new spaces for watching short film content to designing alternative models for distributing documentaries.

Who We Are?
Kunal is no stranger to films, having co-founded India’s first film club dedicated to short films, the Mocha Film Club. The film club was a pivot for short films to be recognized as part of the film culture in India. In a short span of time, the film club became a stepping stone for many short filmmakers to become acclaimed feature filmmakers.
Kunal has studied filmmaking at the Vancouver Film School and is a keen observer of world cinema and the ongoing cinematic trends from across the world.
What Do We Do?
Filamnt is a film programming and distribution company breaking new ground in India’s
dynamic independent film culture.
As Indie Cinema creates a new identity for itself, we at Filamnt would like to create
new ideas in watching films.
We love to discover new films. Explore different film formats. And create new
experiences in watching films.
Programming of Shorts, Features & Documentaries
Alternate Distribution of Shorts, Features & Documentaries
Filamnt believes Indian Independent Films deserve a regular screening platform and every good Independent Film deserves an audience. We believe in showcasing films that are relatively unseen and haven’t received widespread distribution through any medium.
With a special focus on regional features, documentaries and shorts, we personally handpick every film to be screened for our audiences.
Our vision is to create a platform that enables widespread distribution of films through venues that are conducive of and can support Independent Film Screenings. We are in the process of creating an alternate network of Independent Film Screening Venues that enable Independent Filmmakers a better monetary return on their investments as well as gain unique insight into their audiences.
Currently we offer a revenue sharing model to filmmakers. Filamnt believes in creating a social as well as a community experience to the audiences and filmmakers alike. Therefore most of our screenings have a presence of the filmmaker which can create the right ambience of discussion as well as form new opinion through a Q&A.
