We wanted to continue our endeavour of entertaining and edutaining the people of India with interesting films and interactive master classes and workshops. This year we can’t organise a physical edition, though we have tried our best to put together an interesting selection for everyone to enjoy with their family from the comfort of their homes."
The first four editions of the festival were held in Lonavala in Maharashtra and attended by film industry stalwarts like Shyam Benegal, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Ketan Mehta, Govind Nihalani and others.
