Indiancine.ma

Pad.ma has a sister project. 

indiancine.ma was launched at Jaaga, Bangalore by Sebastian Lütgert and Jan Gerber in February 2013.
Indiancine.ma is an annotated online archive of Indian film. It is intended to serve as a shared resource for film scholars and enthusiasts in India and beyond.

indiancine.ma  has been initiated by Pad.ma, and will be operated by a network of film studies institutions in India. The starting set of films and metadata is based on Ashish Rajadhyaksha's and Paul Willemen's Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, and the Indiancine.ma Wiki.

Fwd: Re: Archive

The central event of a month-long gathering organised around the 10th anniversary of Pad.ma the footage archive, and the 5th anniversary of Indiancine.ma.

Pad.ma

is an ongoing public-access media archival project, centered around video as a medium of documentation, collection, argumentation and exchange. Its objective is to consolidate, densely annotate, and make available online several scattered collections of video material, to begin with in Mumbai and Bangalore. Pad.ma is a collaboration between oil21.org, CAMP, Majlis, Point of View, the Alternative Law Forum, and other future contributors.

Pad.ma Archive Launch

Thursday, February 28, 2008.

PAD.MA is an online archive of video material, primarily footage and not finished films, that has been densely text-annotated. The entire collection is searchable and viewable online, and is free to download for non-commercial use.
We see PADMA as a way of opening up a set of images, intentions and effects present in video footage -- resources that conventions of video-making, editing and viewing have over time tended to suppress, or make unavailable.

The New Medium

The New Medium ​was a curated programme for the Mumbai International Film Festival for three consecutive years (2016-2018). The inaugural program - in a twisted art-historical mode - framed cinema as a new medium (125 years old, when compared to the other arts), and scoured the century of cinema chronologically...

Electronic Ear Cleaning

A project of listening, including with our ears, to some materials that seem to not touch us directly, but make up our "environment".

A Season of Footage and Films


CAMP presents
Saturday or Sunday evening screenings through winter, exploring footage both within and outside the usual capsule of "the film". An experience that could be similar to watching films, or at other times harder to digest, or slower to release, closer to the moment of shooting, less censorious, and less fearful of finitude. Another life, another world of viewing and listening experiences is always possible.

The Edgware Road Project


CAMP is involved in a 2-year "print-from-web" project, linked to its own investigations of the infrastructures of commerce and pleasure in this part of London. As part of the first "block study", we looked at several buildings and their ownership and use histories, and produced a series of tablemats.

The web-based part of the project resides at http://edgwareroad.org. ( now at Print.with.camp ) This website collects materials from various such "studies", conducted by us and others, which then are collaboratively edited and published in a number of physical forms: volumes, pamphlets and placemats. This is an ongoing project, as part of the Serpentine Gallery's Public Program.

CAMP roof

Ashok and Azeer spent some time thinking about and building the CAMP terrace roof structure, built in late 2009. Some of the designs that were sketched out are further below: a big requirement was some retractability, i.e. the ability to have a shading roof in the day but to have it open/ partially open at night, for things like screenings under the stars.

Wharfage

At first, a project on the creek in Sharjah, from where a large number of ships leave for Somali ports.
