Kashish Queer Film Festival 2020 to Be Held Online
After being postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival will now be held online this year, making it the first major Indian film festival take place virtually.
Titled ‘Kashish 2020 Virtual’, the film festival will now take place from 22 to 30 July. The festival was initially scheduled to be held from 20 to 24 May at three venues: Liberty Cinema, Metro Inox, and Alliance Française de Bombay, and was pushed to September. However, due to the pandemic, the 11th edition of the festival will only be held online.
While the line-up for Kashish will be revealed in the coming weeks, the programme for the 11th edition has been locked. “We are committed to bring our LGBTQIA+ stories out there to the world, as a means of healing and empowerment,” said Sridhar Rangayan, Festival Director of Kashish.
