An unique film festival, ‘Sambhav’, was inaugurated today at GRD Institute of Management here. The two-day travelling film festival will screen films on gender, masculinity, sexuality and relationship.
Organised by Men Against Violence and Abuse Against Women, a Mumbai-based men’s NGO working to prevent gender-based violence, the festival is supported by GRD institute. It will screen 18 national and international short films, documentaries and feature films on gender-based discrimination and violence against women. It has the backing of Canada Fund for Local Initiatives and will be travelling to 12 locations across the country between October and February 2018.
According to a statement, the target group of the festival is college students. NGO co-founder and chief functionary Harish Sadani said, “The fest aims to develop a gender-just perspective among the youths and help them reflect their biases and prejudices towards any gender.”
