‘Stray’ made through a Metro Screen special youth project screened at the KASHISH – Mumbai International Queer Film Festival in Mumbai in April 2010. This is the first mainstream queer film festival to be held in India. http://www.mumbaiqueerfest.com
This is of course particularly significant because Indian laws only decriminalised homosexuality last year. There is an article about the festival here
Bartholomew Sammut from XPOSED Film Festival based in Berlin programmed a selection of Queer short films from Australia and New Zealand for KASHISH of which ‘Stray’ was selected.
