Vedant Srinivas

Function: Young Critic 2023

Vedant Srinivas graduated with a distinction in Philosophy and went on to do a short course in Filmmaking. Apart from regular film writing for reputed publications, he has collaborated with leading critics/theorists in India, contributed a book chapter to an upcoming anthology on contemporary Indian cinema, and also attempted a translation of a book on the filmmaker Kumar Shahani. Over the years, Vedant Srinivas has dabbled in diverse disciplines, ranging from literature and cinema studies to art-history and anthropology (he got into Oxford for Visual Anthro but unfortunately couldn’t secure funding). What has remained constant throughout is his abiding love for and devotion to the seventh art.
