A Pakistani documentary about displaced persons, an Indian female buddy picture set in Goa, a story about Hindu Muslim unity, a journey based on relationships, family and salvation and a documentary on the disappearing presentation of the travelling “tent cinemas” that transport films to villages across India are just some of the films one will be able to see in Richmond Hill in November.
For the first time, a festival for film lovers “KLIP – A Festival of Films” in collaboration with Kabir Centre for Arts & Culture, will be held on November 25 and 26, 2017 at York Cinemas in Richmond Hill.
The two day South Asian film festival brought by Minaaz will showcase five award winning films including A Billion Color Story, Angry Indian Goddesses, The Cinema Travellers and a Walnut Tree and Mukti Bhawan.
“Through this initiative, we are striving to make our cultural community richer and more vibrant,” say Mini Khurana and Smita Dayal. “The films being shown are well-acclaimed, award-winning and have done the rounds at numerous film festivals around the world. Such South Asian productions rarely happen in York Region. We are confident that the broader community will appreciate this and attend enthusiastically. “
