The book is the first comprehensive account of the seven-decade-long journey of the Film Society Movement in India and how it helped Indian cinema come into its own as a global entity now. The massive transformation is credited to Indian film policies, new film institutions and the Film Society movement. But do such policies and movements have a future in the digital era? Celluloid to Digital: India’s Film Society Movement delves into this question in the OTT age.
