Amit Dutta is a filmmaker and writer. Born in Jammu, he lives and works from the Kangra valley in Himachal Pradesh. He graduated in film direction from the Film & Television Institute of India (FTII) in 2004. He has made over forty films and published six books. His works cover an eclectic range from literary adaptations, fiction, documentation, video-diary and animation, often blurring genres in an attempt to engage directly with the subjects in an alternative way. His works mostly deal with subjects of art history, ethno-anthropology and cultural inheritance through cinema, many times merging research and documentation with an open imagination.
