A success story - KASHISH 2010
Looking ahead - KASHISH 2011
Taking this successful initiative forward KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival 2011 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 125 films from 22 countries.
Why does KASHISH need your support?
The LGBT community in India was underground and largely invisible till a high court order on July 2nd 2009 decriminalized homosexual behaviour. Since then the LGBT community has become more active and visible leading to several LGBT initiatives and events. KASHISH is one of them and has become a wonderful way of Mainstreaming Queer Visibility. It has been a very empowering experience for the LGBT people in Mumbai.
KASHISH is also now recognized as a Pride Event from India by Interpride, an association of all Pride events around the world.
With no government or state funding available for LGBT events in India and no cultural or community grants available, we have to rely on organizations and companies that believe in supporting LGBT community building.
It is for this reason that we are writing to everyone who would like to make a financial contribution, however small. This is an investment which will help us organize the festival and make it into a sustaining annual Pride event.
