Indian Film is the most popular media for most of the world, and yet academia has only scratched the surface of studying it. A special panel at the Midwest Popular Culture Association 2014 conference will address the societal and artistic implications of the genre.

Submissions welcome on topics from women in film to Indian film in the west to film and religion, or even more broadly, how Indian culture in general interacts with religion, politics, or social issues.
