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 theatre 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 3rd KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival will be held from May 23-27, 2012 in Mumbai at two venues – Cinemax Versova and Alliance Française de Bombay. KASHISH 2012’s theme ‘FOR EVERYONE’ means that the festival will make a special effort to program films and have panel discussions that not only deal with gay, lesbian, transgender themes, but also those that relate to families and friends of LGBT people.
The festival is open FOR EVERYONE and it is a FREE event.
