Bato Ko Cinema (BKC) is street cinema that takes place throughout Kathmandu in public places. We show documentary films from Nepal and around the world for free to whoever wants to stop and watch. We use film to spark ideas, create discussion, and inspire people.
BKC uses film and video to tell stories, especially those that are often not covered in mainstream media. We place a strong value on putting the issues into a Nepali context and making the films accessible to a Nepali speaking audience through the use of subtitles (and, in the future, dubbing).
Sattya Media Arts Collective is a resource network for artists, writers, filmmakers, photographers, and other creative types in Nepal.

Sattya aims to be a hub for DIY culture, collaboration, inspiration, activism, and learning for emerging media artists and anyone interested in experiential learning, arts, films, and urban issues. Sattya is a participation based organization, open to everyone and strongly rooted in the spirit of volunteerism and inclusiveness, providing opportunities for people from all backgrounds, ages, and skill levels.
