About Voices from the Waters
Voices from the Waters International Travelling Film Festival is a celebration of water, the element that nurtures life in manifold ways. Initiated by Bangalore Film Society in 2005, the festival brings to you water stories from across the world. We are all touched by the beauty of water…
Civilizations through the ages harnessed water and grew around it. However, contemporary civilizations have seen it as an economic utility and a dumping ground for all the waste they generate and polluted it. The festival is also the stories of restoration of water to its pristine beauty. Viewing these visual narratives gives us all an opportunity to focus on the global water crisis and engage in deep reflection to conserve this life sustaining nectar for posterity. Water brings us all together.
Apart from films, the other avenues of engagement at the festival would be painting and photo exhibition, art installations, water songs, lectures, roundtables, eco-conscious product bazaar and interaction with film directors, water activists and water scholars.
Bangalore Film Society
Bangalore Film Society (BFS) is a nonprofit cultural organization registered under the Registrar of Society's Act Karnataka and affiliated to the Federation of Film Societies of India. We explore through the medium of cinema, the cultural politics and how it impacts and shapes the contemporary cultural practices, politics and social behaviour. Towards this, we organize regular film screenings and discussions on feature and documentary films from across the globe as well as organise film festival and conferences on specific themes. Voices from the Waters International Traveling Film festival is one of its major activity. Through our well curated programmes we attempt to connect the participants with cultural histories of ideas and desires of social transformations, contentious socio-cultural-political issues of our times as well as provide an aesthetic experience.
The festival is a great opportunity for young volunteers to interact with many creative people contributing to keep our environment clean and beautiful. It is a platform for creative ideas and practice.
The selected volunteers will coordinate the festival and invite educational institutions in Bangalore to promote and invite them to participate in the festival.
