Best of KASHISH at SNDT
KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival is bringing a slice of its festival to the suburbs with the ‘Best of KASHISH’ screening organized as part of the ongoing Mumbai Pride Month.
‘Best of KASHISH’, a 4 hour programme of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) films that have won awards or have been audience favourites at KASHISH 2014, will be screened at this event to be held on January 24th 4pm-8pm at SNDT Women’s College, Juhu.
Some of the notable films are ‘Families are Forever’ (Winner of KASHISH 2014 Best Documentary Short), ‘Naked’ (Winner of KASHISH 2014 Best International Narrative Short), ‘P.D.A’ (Special Mention in KASHISH 2014 Best International Narrative Short), audience favourites ‘Crush-Shake’, ‘Spooners’, ‘Luigi & Vincenzo’ and the wonderful lesbian feature ‘Margarita’ from Canada.
“These films touch a chord within us and make us realize that LGBTQ persons are human beings with the same human emotions, and they too need to be accepted as part of the larger social mainstream in every country. It is time we stop discrimination and hatred against LGBTQ persons. Let us together build a society that accords equality and dignity for everyone”, said Sridhar Rangayan, festival director of KASHISH.
The event promises to be a roller-coaster journey of happiness & hope, fun & fights, tears & trauma, laughter & love.
