Starting off we have two very special films from Kashish 2011…

I Am (2011, 82 min, India, Onir)
Awarded Best Narrative Feature –

Jury’s Citation:
For the film’s truly kaleidoscopic vision of the human condition.
The film narrates four diverse stories, which deal with a spectrum of topics including same-gender relationships. The quartet is a marvelous portrait of contemporary social concerns, in sum their impact being bold as well as beautiful.

Kusum-The Flower Bud (2010, 10.31 min, India, Shumona Banerjee)
Recieved Riyad Wadia Award for Best Emerging Indian Filmmaker

Jury’s Citation:
For the whimsical, witty and yet so wise ‘Kusum
– The Flower Bud’, about a spunky transvestite’s
bond with an eccentric professor.

“Yaariyan” is coming together of young and enthusiastic Mumbai queer who at the moment prefer to call themselves “Yaariyan – A work in Progress’

There was never a better way to spend your Sundays, bring your pals and come watch great movies with the young and vibrant YAARIYAN folks in CEFE, a safe and homely space sprawled with cozy cushions, hot tea, snacks and some very warm people!
