Reel Bhangra Short Documentaries


19+ Event 

City of Bhangra Festival introduces an inaugural evening of film spotlighting the voices of young South Asian voices in cinema.  The evening features the world premiere of the much-anticipated documentary, Bhangra City produced by Delhi 2 Dublin- funded from Telus.
Bhangra City-Bubbling just under the surface of Vancouver’s natural beauty and expensive real estate is a vibrant Punjabi music and dance scene that produces some of the world’s biggest bhangra superstars. Tarun Nayar and local band Delhi 2 Dublin give us a tour, including a chat with Jazzy B, watching a sold-out Diljit Dosanjh show in Abbotsford, and crashing a wedding in Surrey. The film also addresses the factors that keep this scene hidden, including the difficulty South Asians face in getting booked at local festivals and clubs, and the broader lack of diversity on screen and stage in North America.
