KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival is the first and only LGBTQ film festival in India to be held in a mainstream theater and the first queer festival in India to receive clearance from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. KASHISH was voted as one of the top 5 coolest LGBT film festivals in the world by a worldwide poll conducted by MovieMaker Magazine in 2013.

Over the previous 5 editions, from 2010 to 2014, the festival has grown from strength to strength, attracting close to 6500 footfalls over the 4 1/2 days of the festival at two venues. The festival, every year, screens around 120 - 130 films that include shorts, documentaries, features - all centered around LGBTQ themes. The festival attracts more than 30% non LGBT audience, film & media celebrities and intentional guests.

6th edition of the festival will be held May 27 - 31, 2015 at the iconic Art Deco theater Liberty Cinema (built in 1947!) and Alliance Fran├žaise de Bombay.

The theme for this year is Reaching Out, Touching Hearts, reflecting the urgent need for all of us to reach across barriers and boundaries, reach out to everyone, and build alliances across race, class, caste, religion, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation to challenge prejudice, change attitudes and create a society that allows each person to live with love and dignity.

KASHISH is a not-for-profit event and funds collected are utilized to meet costs of organizing the event. The festival relies on companies, organizations and individuals who believe in KASHISH and in supporting LGBT initiatives.

Whether you are an organization, film festival, company, an outlet or a service provider, an advertisement in our festival catalog can offer you a unique and exciting opportunity for outreach.
