Mumbai International Queer Film Festival In June

MUMBAI – To celebrate Pride Month, which is observed around the world in June, the 14th edition of KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival, South Asia’s biggest LGBTQ+ film festival will be held here, both in person and online.  

Sridhar Rangayan, founder and festival director said, “There is Hope beyond the Rainbow! After the reading down of Sec 377 in 2018, the LGBTQ+ community has been rallying for equal rights, anti-discriminatory laws, equality for transgender persons, and the recent hot topic of marriage equality. Kashish has been part of this movement for change from its inception…”

The theme for this year is ‘BE FLUID, BE YOU!’, giving wings to the aspirations of the contemporary generation that is fluid in their thoughts, actions, and sexualities, which is expressed through films, art, and poetry that is universal in its appeal, festival organizers said.

The fest will screen 129 films from 46 countries out of which 101 films from 41 countries will screen at the on-ground edition. The online version will screen 104 films that will have many films from the on-ground version too. But the film line-up and schedules for the on-ground and online editions are different.

The festival will also have celebrity red-carpet events, engaging panel discussions, exquisite performances by the queer community and allies, workshops, interactive sessions, and a film pitching session for your LGBTQ+ filmmakers to make their next short film.
