  • To watch my movies with an audience in Mumbai was a very emotional experience and more overwhelming than I had expected. I have been to a lot of queer film festivals around the world and they can learn something from the way KASHISH is organized. It is wonderful.

    Filmmaker & KASHISH 2012 Filmmaker in Focus

  • KASHISH is the only mainstream queer film festival in India. By mainstream I mean where the films are screened at multiplexes and not in some institution or club. This is very significant as it brings lgbt films across the world to the community and audience in general so that there is not only more exposure to queer stories but it also in the longer run spreads awareness and acceptance.

    Filmmaker & Guest of Honour at KASHISH 2012

  • It was a great time meeting local filmmakers, tasting some authentic food and generally understanding more about being LGBT in India. I’ve always believed that we live in a global village where most experiences are shared – but I also like diversity, that’s what I enjoyed during my time at KASHISH.

    BERWYN ROWLANDS (UK)
    Producer, Festival Director – Iris Prize & KASHISH 2013 Jury member

  • KASHISH is at the forefront of that change and is doing so much to change minds and hearts among the wider public, and to strengthen and nurture the LGBT community’s own perceptions of itself in terms of dignity and humanity.

    ROY WADIA
    Communication Strategist, KASHISH Advisory Board member & Jury

  • KASHISH is the need of our times when a community gets represented through performing arts. Gay rights cannot only be won in the courtroom but it has to win hearts and minds of the people. Cinema is a powerful medium to achieve that and KASHISH has been doing that since 2010.

    PRINCE MANVENDRA SINGH GOHIL
    Activist & guest at KASHISH 2013 Opening Night

  • Film Festivals such as KASHISH must be protected and nurtured. Because it is a niche within the niche of film festivals. I am happy to be part of the jury of a festival of cinema that celebrates diversity and makes spaces for difference.
