Indian LGBTQ+ short films shine at KASHISH 2021 | Talesbuzz

The 12th edition of KAHSISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival, South Asia’s biggest LGBTQIA+ film festival, continues its virtual journey into its third weekend, titled Pride Weekend. The festival is screening 221 films from 53 countries, out of which 24 are Indian LGBTQIA+ films.

“We are thrilled to be screening so many films from India, as KASHISH has become a strong platform to nurture the nascent Indian LGBTQIA+ cinema movement, by not only exhibiting, but also producing and distributing Indian LGBTQIA+ content. This weekend we are screening 3 programs of Indian short films – Indian Masala Mix 1 & 2 and Indian Narrative Shorts Competition. Each of these short films are unique because they reflect the diverse reality of LGBTQIA+ lives and cuts across sex/gender, rural/urban and class divides. These films need to be seen by one and all, so that queer lives find their representation in the larger mainstream”, said Sridhar Rangayan, festival director.
