The 9th International Travelling Film Festival

VOICES FROM THE WATERS - 2014

A Community outreach event on water in everyday life

 

 

genericlogo2014We have successfully completed 8 editions of Voices from the Waters International Film Festival/conferences in multiple venues in Bangalore. Due to its growing popularity, this year we have already received 145 films from 27 countries and more are on its way. More and more documentary film makers focus their creativity on water. We will be screening at the festival the very best of them, about 40 to 45 aesthetically crafted works – all of them, a must watch.

The venue of the festival is the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) at Bangalore India, which has a beautiful ambiance and plenty of parking space. At the colorful Inauguration studded with cultural events like dance performances, water songs and so on, prominent people working on water issues from across the country would be present along with film directors and water activists with whom you will be interacting with. Also there will be Photography and Painting Exhibitions, Eco bazaars and Organic food courts to keep you busy with. We are expecting a thousand people to be at the venue at any given time between 10 am and 8 pm.

We are going through a phase of uncertain climatic conditions of unseasonal gale and storm, heat wave and cold wave, melting Antarctica and rising seas gobbling up the landmass, increasing desertification and so on. The festival offers you a glimpse into all these and more – the struggle, the hopes and despair, the success stories…

The festival also brings to you the quintessential yearning of the humans – to be integrated into nature… Come and be part of it to imagine a new world.
