Silhouette, a space, is born not of conviction rather of profound confusion in our understanding of the world. It seeks to be a platform for gathering myriad views on film (and allied art forms) and to continue with the flux of discourse. The Silhouette publications are our attempt to achieve this goal.
Silhouette magazine started its journey in January 2002. The annual paper edition used to be a bilingual magazine in English and Bengali from Kolkata (India) and survived 8 editions. For quite sometime the editorial board of Silhouette dilly-dallied with the web option of the magazine – whether to continue with a sluggish and expensive medium or not was the supreme question. And finally the web editions started in 2011 – we had 8 issues collected under Volumes IX and X in a not so state-of-the-art website. Our urgency to move to the web and let the ball roll again was the main reason for this.
We have eventually now moved to the more professionally and aesthetically managed Learning and Creativity micro-site and plan to regularly update the site with articles from authors rather than collections as Issues and Volumes.
In parallel, we have plans of having some other interesting stuff up in the Silhouette site – competitions, awards etc. when the time seem to be appropriate for these ventures.
Silhouette earnestly solicits your valuable association and views – for us, you and our changing silhouettes.
