Pallavi Arora is a documentary filmmaker and designer based in New Delhi. She graduated from the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad with a specialisation in film and video communication in 2002. She has made films for various organisations and NGO's including The Sacred World foundation and UNICEF. Her films have been screened and won awards at film festivals across the world and have been part of two interactive design exhibitions, one on Gandhi, 'The Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum' and the other, 'The Crossing Project' on the city of Banaras. Films made for the “GirlStars” series for UNICEF and the NGO Going to School have been aired on national television and even screened across the villages in North India. In 2016, Pallavi was on the pre-selection Jury for the International Golden Tree Film Festival held for the first time in Frankfurt.
Apart from making documentaries, Pallavi is also the cofounder of Sotomoto, a design studio that specialises in creating kids’ products inspired by Indian Crafts.
Realising the need for children to be exposed to filmmaking and photography as forms of creative expression, Pallavi started an initiative in 2015 titled ‘The Little Picture Project’. By means of fun and interactive workshops, the project guides students through various stages of filmmaking beginning from inception to working on an edit.
The Little Picture Project conducts filmmaking workshops for children and young adults (age 7 onwards) using an interactive hands on approach that emphasises on creativity and teamwork. The Little Picture Project has been developed as a valuable and enriching extra curricular and in-school activity. The workshops are conducted in various formats: After School Classes / In-School Classes / Weekend Workshops / School Holiday Programmes. LPP currently works with The Shriram Schools in Gurugram, the British School and the Indian Institute of Arts & Communication in New Delhi.
