The Film Club

The Film Club


The Film Club of Bharati College, instituted in August 2013, organizes weekly screenings of world cinema followed by intense discussion sessions. The screenings are usually held on Thursdays, from 1.15 pm to 3.15 pm, for much of the academic session. Films are usually interpreted and analysed using the psychoanalytic framework of Lacan/Zizek and the film philosophy of Gilles Deleuze.


The Film Club comprises of Student Members, a Committee of five student representatives – President, Vice President, Secretary, Joint Secretary and Media Coordinator – and a Faculty Coordinator.


The Film Club has set up a small DVD Library of film adaptations of novels in the Bharati College Library. The collection has film adaptations of many of the texts prescribed for the CBCS BA English (Hons) syllabus. Students can issue them through their teachers for screening in Library Computer Lab, Seminar Room or Theatre Room. The following films are available in the collection:
