Documentaries on classical dance at IFFI

A four-day documentary film festival on Indian classical dance and gurus, Dancing Feet will be an offering of the film division to delegates of the 41st Iffi.

Organized by the directorate of film festivals ( DFF) and the ESG, this festival of 22 selected documentaries will be held at the black box at Kala Academy, Panaji.

Conceived as a sequel to the hugely applauded film festival on music, Moments with the Maestros, held as part of Iffi last year, Dancing Feet offers dance lovers from India and abroad glimpses of prominent classical dances like the Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Odissi, Kathakali, Kathak, Mohiniattam and Manipuri.

Biopics on some of the dancing icons including Sitara Devi, Pt Birju Maharaj, Yamini Krishnamurthy, Sonal Mansingh, Padma Subramaniam, Uma Mallika Sarabhai, etc are also being screened at the festival.
