KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival 2011, the second edition of India’s only mainstream LGBT film fest, promises to be BIGGER, BOLDER & QUEERER. The second edition will be held from May 25-29, 2011 at two venues in Mumbai, one of which will be a multiplex theater.

 

This year, the festival will showcase more than 130 films from over 25 countries.

The highlights this year:

- More feature length films than last year with some very sensitive lesbian themed features.

- Films from across the globe: from US to UK, Australia to Austria, India to Indonesia and even Argentina and Peru.

- This year, the ‘Country Focus’ will be on Israel with more than 8 films from there.

- ‘Spotlight on Filmmaker’ will shine on a US filmmaker and a UK filmmaker with their funny, sexy and thought provoking films.

- Special package of films on Anti-Bullying and gay bashing in schools followed by a panel discussion.

- Continuing KASHISH’s mission of showcasing and promoting Indian queer shorts and short filmmakers, this year would have a fantastic collection under its ‘Indian Masala Mix’ program.

- A competition section for Best Narrative Feature too, which would include both Indian and International films made in 2010 / 2011. This is in addition to the other competitive categories awarded last year: Best Docu Feature, Best Docu Short, Best International Narrative Short and Best Indian Narrative Short.

 

- The Best Indian queer short film at Kashish gets to compete for the Iris Prize in UK and a cash prize of 25,000 pounds.
