WHAT IS ‘KASHISH’

KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival is the first and only LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) film festival in India to be held in a mainstream theater and the only such festival to receive clearance from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. The festival is organized by Solaris Pictures and Bombay Dost in association with The Humsafar Trust.

The theme for the third edition of the festival, KASHISH 2012, to be held at a multiplex theater (May 23-27th) and Alliance Française de Bombay (May 24-26th) is ‘FOR EVERYONE’. The festival will make a special effort to program films and have panel discussions that appeal not only to the LGBTQ community but also those that relate to families and friends of LGBT people. The festival is open FOR EVERYONE and it is a FREE event.

 

WHY IS ‘KASHISH’ Fundraising?

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.

With no government support and corporate sponsorship in India still difficult to come by, we rely heavily on support from individuals and organizations to make the festival happen. We are crowd-funding the festival this year through Wishberry.in and LGBTSupports.org.

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

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP ‘KASHISH’?

EVERYONE can 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  (Check out links above).
