Movie Club

Club Chair: Neerja Rao


There is more action, drama, romance, violence behind the screen than on it! And IWA MOVIE CLUB brings it all out in the open during the cozy gatherings. Not for the weak hearted, these four-weekly meet-ups, are for the true-blue gossip mongers and purveyors of juicy tidbits! 

We at IWA Movie Club dive deep into a movie, explore new genres, go behind the scenes to take a top-angle view of the context and fundamentals.

Relish and rejoice the pages of Filmfare, Blitz come alive in a lively environment over mouth-watering Indian fare! Relive the magic of movies and get drenched in the tinsel town Stardust!

FILMS? OOPS They are incidental! 

WHEN & WHERE: Filmy dhamaal every 4th Wednesday of the month
