 About the Organizer :

KASHISH Mumbai Intentional Queer Film Festival is South Asia's biggest queer film festival and the only LGBT film festival in India to be held in a mainstream theatre. It has been voted as one of the Top 5 coolest LGBT Film Festivals in the World and has been listed as one of the Top 5 film festivals in India. 

 

Founded in 2010, KASHISH has grown from strength to strength over the last six years. Held across five days and simultaneously at two venues, the festival attracts close to 8500 footfalls every year. It is the first Indian LGBT festival to receive approval by the Information & Broadcasting Ministry, Government of India.

 

The festival also attracts noted Bollywood celebrities, film-makers, critics and academicians from India as well as international guests from across the world. It receives more than 100 press features every year from Indian press as well as international press, including in The New York Times in 2014. 

KASHISH believes that art and films are powerful mediums to bring about social change and the festival uses the reach and spread that KASHISH has already established, as one of Mumbai’s important film festival, to rally public opinion towards equality and dignity for LGBT persons. KASHISH uses local, national and international platforms to advocate and sensitize the larger public about LGBT issues.

Not just romantic love, but love from family, love from friends & peers, love from workplace colleagues, love from government, love from law, and love from society. All of these shades of love complement each other to ensure a complete blossoming of every individual.

 

This year’s festival theme ‘7 Shades of Love’ embodies this spirit, that underlines the core of human relationships – to love each other, offer respect to each other, so that everyone can live with equality and dignity. Indeed, love can conquer all.
