NICE WORDS ABOUT THE FILM
New York Magazine: "Sharply funny"
Huffington Post: "With DOSA HUNT, Filmmaker Amrit Singh Emerges as Generational Voice"
Interview Magazine: "Part No Reservations, part Big Brother, part something smarter,
with lots of laughs, something to learn, and - naturally, given the company - an amazing soundtrack"
BlackBook: "Five Out Of Five... Singh [has] the mark of a fanboy filmmaker not yet jaded by the Merchants Of Cool-hood of pop music."
Hyphen Magazine: "Frankly, the peek at this brotherhood may be even more appealing than the food."
Times Of India
: "‘Dosa Hunt’ is more than just a search for New York’s best dosa. It’s a short film
about the Indian community’s growth and search for cultural roots in the US."

ABOUT DOSA HUNT
DOSA HUNT is a short film by Amrit Singh featuring a diverse group of music-world friends -- Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, Das Racist's Himanshu Suri and Ashok "Dapwell" Kondabolu, Yeasayer's Anand Wilder, Neon Indian's Alan Palomo, jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, and Stereogum's Executive Editor, Singh -- on a quest to find their hometown's best dosa. The delicious traditional South Indian crepe has earned this long-overdue cinematic closeup. But our our heroes' journey -- bantering in an Indian disco van, eating their way through the restaurants and grocery stores of Manhattan and Queens -- also explores the shared and respective cultures of this vibrant group of NYC artists in the wilds of their city. Called “sharply funny” by New York Magazine, “part No Reservations, part Big Brother part something smarter” by Interview Magazine, and “a short film about the Indian community’s growth and search for cultural roots in the US” by The Times Of India, DOSA HUNT is a snapshot of a transitional generation in America's immigrant/art experience, in hot pursuit of good food. Set to a killer soundtrack.

ABOUT AMRIT SINGH
Amrit Singh has served as Executive Editor of Stereogum.com for seven years, writing and producing the website into a leading voice in independent music. His video journalism has appeared on ABC, MTV, and Fuse. (He also served as Editor of the University of Wisconsin International Law Journal, and is a NY State Bar certified attorney, but please don't remind his father of this.) The Huffington Post called him a "generational voice" and "a global citizen to watch," which is not bad. DOSA HUNT is his first film. (Full bio.)

  • Announcing the opening run of DOSA HUNT @ Nitehawk Cinema in Williasmburg on Friday 10/5, Saturday 10/6, and Monday 10/8!
TICKETS ONSALE HERE. 
Each ticket comes with dosa and samosa (provided by the delicious Anjappar). After each screening there will be a Q&A panel moderated by music television great John Norris. The afterparties will have complimentary Kingfisher beer, with DJ sets by DFA Artist REWARDS (Friday), Jagjaguwar artist Small Black (Saturday), and Quinn Walker of Frenchkiss Records outfit Suckers (Saturday). Tickets are $15 — for dinner, screening, beer, and friendship. THAT’S PRETTY GOOD.
Friday and Saturday doors are at 11PM (with dosa at 12AM, screening at 12:30AM), while Monday is a Columbus Day matinee at 1PM, which will be a special time. Dosa and drinking is a great way to observe that holiday given how much that dude loved Indians. 
That above is an event-specific variation on the official film poster, by NYC tattoo artist/godbody Anil Gupta. He is the best.
We’re really proud of the movie and can’t wait to share it with you. These will be beautiful celebrations. We’d love to have you.
