About Screeners Cine-club –Organized by Ashok Vish, ‘Screeners’ is a Cine-club in Bangalore, India wherein independent, experimental and art films will be screened monthly at the comfort of somebody’s home. With a scarcity of venues showcasing independent cinema and the growing decline of single-screen theatres across the city, Ashok felt the need to begin this initiative for a simple reason, to provide an environment for varied film viewings and post film discussion, and hopefully foster a community of filmmakers and artists in Bangalore interested in the moving image. Why somebody’s home? To keep it as informal and conducive for discussion as possible.
