Gorakhpur film festival ..

film-fest3rd Gorakhpur film festival will be held from February 5 to8, 2009.

The theme of the festival is ‘Towards the Freedom from American Imperialism’. Prominent Indian novelist and political commentator Arundhati Roy and filmmaker Girish Kasarvalli and other well known personalities are expected to participate in the festival. The festival will open with Girish Kasarvalli’s latest feature film ‘Gulabi Talkies’. A special section has been curated on documentaries on Orissa’s people’s struggle against State and it’s anti people development policies.

Famous Indian painter Ashok Bhowmick will give lecture-demonstration on Anti War Sentiments in World Paintings. On this occasion, a 75 page monograph on World Cinema’s great masters, a festival brochure, an anti war poster, an interview based documentary on MS Sathyu and an audio cd of Kabir songs by Bairag Lok Geet Yuva Mandal of Malwa, Madhya Pradesh will be released.

The very important aspect of Gorakhpur Film Festival is its independence. As a policy festival will not be banking on sponsorships, and instead strongly believe in people’s participation. Thus the festival is solely dependent on small contributions and advertisements for the brochure.   This very idea of creating an independent festival is not only supported by people of Gorakhpur but like minded people from rest of India  too.

The festival dates are February 5 to February 8, 2007.

Venue is Gokul Atithi Bhawan, Civil Lines, Gorakhpur.

Gorakhpur is very well connected to the network of Indian Railways. There are few flights from New Delhi and Mumbai. Other important cities close to Gorakhpur are Lucknow (6hr taxi drive) and Varanasi (5 hr taxi drive). Please forward this appeal to your friends and like minded people and contribute with your valuable suggestions to make this cultural movement more effective and meaningful.
