Delhi International Queer Theatre and Film Festival is a brave initiative by Harmless Hugs – one amongst the biggest youth oriented LGBT support group in India. To be held at 12 and 13 December 2015, The Film Festival is intended to connect with larger Diaspora of Indian LGBTQ struggle for equal human rights, and to reach out to masses via the omnipotence of Media and Cinema. We also have a strong line up of stirring theatre performances and more.
Movie screenings and plays are well-complimented by a round of panel discussions and debates, including some of the biggest names from the Indian LGBTQ Movement. We would venture into the tumultuous territories of politics, gender disparity, coming out and involvement of families and more.
