Hello, Bonjour, Namaste

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Transcultural Studies at the University of Calgary. I am currently writing a thesis about the production culture of independent Indian-European co-productions that travel through the international film festival circuit. My research sheds light on the rarely acknowledged production practices of Indian creative producers in transnational cinema.

I also work as a producer to amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour through film and tv projects in Alberta.


My research interests are interdisciplinary:

film festival studies, transnational cinema, American and Indian indie cinema, media industries and production studies.

A wider spectrum of my research interests includes:

postcolonial studies, feminism, media labor, cultural policy studies, anthropology, ethnography literary theory and film theory.
