the
pathbreaking

“We
felt
that
it
is
necessary
to
assist
filmmakers
who
belong
to
the
LGBTQIA+
group
have
no
funding
assist
to
notice
their
dream
tasks.
They
are
typically
sidelined
by
manufacturing
homes
and
OTT
platforms,
as a result of
the
LGBTQIA+
filmmakers
imagine
in
being
true
to
their
content material
and
do
not
chase
after
bringing
on
board
large
stars.
This
ties
up
with
KASHISH’s
mission
of
enabling
the
platform
for
LGBTQIA+
group
and
be
inclusive
in
its
truest
sense”,
stated
Sridhar
Rangayan,
competition
director
of
KASHISH
Mumbai
Worldwide
Queer
Movie
Pageant.

exults,
“The
KASHISH
QDrishti
movie
grant
enabled
me
to
put
my
plan
for
my
quick
movie
into
movement.
It is
not
simply
the
cash
however
the
confidence
of
being
awarded
the
grant
by
an
eminent
jury
of
very
revered
writers
and
filmmakers
that
gave
wings
to
me
and
the
movie.
Even
after,
by
the
whole
course of
of
making
the
movie,
I’ve
had
so
a lot
assist
from
Sridhar
Rangayan,
Saagar
Gupta
and
Neeraj,
as
producers
that
I
really feel
blessed.
Their
inputs
from
the
script
to
casting
to
serving to
get
reductions
wherever
doable
in
the
manufacturing
course of
by
to
the
post-production
of
our
movie,
has
been
an
absolute
pleasure.
It is
been
a
enjoyable
experience
and
that is
uncommon.
