Curated Theme 'MENTAL HEALTH'



Deadline: December 20, 2020 (There is no entry fee to submit a film)

The festival theme is based on Mental Health and it is non-competitive in categories of fiction, experimental, animation & documentary films. The duration of the films should not be more than 25 minutes including credits. English subtitles have to be embedded in the film.

After the success of its inaugural edition Gandhara Independent Film Festival is initiating a special 2-day virtual screening to highlight Mental Health through specifically curated films and panel discussions with the aim of tackling the stigma and discrimination associated with the health condition.

If you think your story is moving and fits within the theme of mental health then submit your films for GIFF Thematic 2021 and be a part of this virtual event.


Due to the current situation of #Covid19 where social distancing is mandatory, we are playing out part by hosting our film festival event through online streaming on our website. It will be accessible free to watch globally because we believe art has no boundaries and we hope to build a community of filmmakers around the world.
