KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival became a landmark milestone in Indian LGBT movement by being the first ever queer film festival to be held in a mainstream venue – a cinema multiplex. It was also the first queer film festival to receive clearance from the Indian government. The four day festival, organized by Solaris Pictures and Bombay Dost in association with The Humsafar Trust, screened 110 films from 25 countries at two venues and saw an incredible audience turnout of 1200 persons and attendance of a host of Bollywood celebrities. KASHISH is set to return Bigger, Bolder and Queerer very soon in 2011.
