The KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival is an annual LGBT event that has been held in Mumbai, India since the year 2010. The film festival screens gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer films from India and around the world. “Here is where people meet, interests meet, geographies meet. It is also a place where minds open up to the idea of inclusion and acceptance in the larger sense of things. The trigger for all of these is cinema. The days of Kashish are no less than any magnum opus. People strengthen their ties, build conversations, and some also kick-start new friendships, and sometimes, new romantic relationships”, said Parmesh Shahani, the head of India Culture Lab by Godrej.
