7th Annual Frames Film Festival
When Mumbai was under siege in 2008, it witnessed a lot of destruction. Pain, suffering and loss of life and resources caused the spirit of Mumbai to be daunted by the dastardly and unprovoked attacks. The city seemed to be thrown off the tracks and the blame game had begun.
Taking a cue from the small group of citizens who felt that though we were attacked, it was time to move on, Frames has decided to celebrate life through films. We at Frames believe that though we were down, it’s time we rise, though we cried, it’s time to wipe away the tears and put away the pain. It’s now time to move on leaving behind the haphazard blame game and stand up for purposeful action which can only be ignited by a youthful passion.
The 3 days of Frames will be revolutionary ones as the established mindset will be challenged and a new line of thought of responsibility and courage takes root. Join us even as we celebrate life and re-live the days of the ‘Flower Power’ era and usher in a change in the attitudes and mindset of people using the power of films.
