Festival Films 2014


Our 12th Annual Film Festival - 2014

This year’s festival is pleased to present some of the best documentaries, indie narratives and short films from India, Pakistan, Germany, UK and the USA. A special focus on Dance and Music in Film draws upon South Asia’s rich and diverse traditions, and offers an opportunity to incorporate live performance into the festival. Cross-cultural relationships -- in the arts and of the heart -- are featured, as are stories of the surprising resistance and resilience of youth. Our Women Behind the Lens focus continues this year, with an incredible range of up and coming young filmmakers. And regional stories that span the Indian subcontinent, from Gujrati to Bengali and Marathi to Tamil, find a place on the program.
