KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival

KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival pioneers as the biggest gay & lesbian film festival in India and South Asia. It is the only queer film fest to be held at a mainstream venue - one of Mumbai's top multiplexes; and was the first LGBT festival to receive clearance from India's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

Since its debut in 2010, over the past three years the festival has grown bigger, bolder and queerer; bringing world-class queer cinema not only to LGBT audiences, but also a sizeable (around 30%) mainstream audience. KASHISH has today become one of the important annual events in Mumbai's cultural calendar.

KASHISH 2013

The 4th edition of KASHISH Mumbai International Queer film Festival will be held from May 22-26, 2013 at Cinemax Versova and May 23-25, 2013 at Alliance Française de Bombay in South Mumbai.

The theme for KASHISH 2013 is TOWARDS CHANGE, recognizing the progressive movements for equality and dignity for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons across the world, including India. KASHISH 2013 will highlight, reflect upon and celebrate these movements 'Towards Change'.

WHAT IS ‘KASHISH’

KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival pioneers as the biggest gay & lesbian film festival in India and South Asia. It is the only queer film fest to be held at a mainstream venue - one of Mumbai's top multiplexes; and was the first LGBT festival to receive clearance from India's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

WHY IS ‘KASHISH’ AT WISHBERRY

The festival is a not for profit event. 

We don’t charge ticket prices or registration fee. It is open to everyone free of charge. Everyone who wants to be part of the movement ‘Towards Change’ is welcome.

With no government support and not substantial corporate sponsor support still available for LGBT events, we rely heavily on individuals, organizations and corporates to make the festival happen. Help us to continue bringing the best of Indian and international queer films for your viewing. We intend to crowd-fund the festival this year too through Wishberry.

All the money collected is used to cover festival expenses like venue costs, printing and stationery, promotional materials, trophies and awards, stay for filmmakers, etc.

 HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT ‘KASHISH’?

Everyone is welcome to contribute, to help us organize this festival that offers everyone a better understanding about LGBTQ people, their issues, their pain and problems, their joys and victories; not only in India but across the world.

You can support the cause in your own big or small way! We have some exclusive incentives to show our gratitude for everyone who contributes.
