  • 6th IAWRT ASIAN WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL 2010 BREAKING BOUNDARIES : SHARED SPACES presented by INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF and INDIA INTERNATIONAL CENTRE WOMEN IN RADIO AND TELEVISION at India International Centre, Lodi Estate, New Delhi 3:00 PM The thrust will be to create a three-way interaction between media makers, especially those producing highly watched soaps and reality shows, viewers of these programmes and experts in the area of psychology, media research, development communication and film making. CHANGING REPRESENTATION: ARE WE CONFRONTING "REAL" ISSUES? This session will look at the so-called changing dynamics of serials and reality shows and examine whether the change is real and meaningful. To share their professional insight and understanding, we are inviting a panel of TV channel programmers, media makers (especially those involved in producing and creating popular serials and reality shows) to present their perspectives. The panelists will give their take on how they perceive the so-called changing dynamics of serials and reality and share their insight and understanding on whether these changes are true and meaningful for the audiences that they are seeking to reach out in scale and impact. 4:00 PM TEA BREAK 4:15 PM VIEWERS SPEAKE: WHAT WE THINK ABOUT TV? Responding to them a panel of media viewers, representing diverse realities will share their perspective and focus on their personal experiences and insight about the specific effects that television fiction and reality shows has had on them. Some of the viewers concerns that we will explore through a panel of experts (drawn from diverse professional fields such as film makers, psychologists, individuals anchoring popular shows, academia) are "selling dreams", “impacting self-esteem" and "raising aspirations". Tribute to Minal Hazarika. 6:00 PM END OF SESSION [Schedule subject to change.
