First of its kind in INDIA , Filmsthan is an International Film Festival On Wheels. The name and the tagline are self-explanatory. We at Filmsthan aim to take cinemas to every nook and corner of the country. Filmsthan will build an entire ecosystem of enthusiastic artists, and movie makers. Interaction with artists and makers will give audience a better understanding of the industry. This forum will act as a platform for upcoming and rising artists to voice their opinions and ideas. Makers and creators will get this extraordinary chance to connect with wider audience and convey their messages. Filmsthan is making exemplary efforts to give cinema and art more exposure.

Filmsthan is amalgam of Cinema, Theatre, Music, Art, and Culture. Hardly do we see one platform where all these categories are brought together. We believe that all these fields go hand in hand; one is incomplete without the other. Filmsthan will give this one of its kind opportunity for all the people from these fields to interact and exchange their expertise. This will not only enrich the performance on stage with diversity but also build a strong ecosystem for the future of stage art in the country.

The world has been blessed to receive some wonderful film creations; unfortunately some part of the same world never got the opportunity to witness these creations.

Filmsthan is going to knock at every door of rural India and enlighten people with Film Festivals. The outreach of the silver screen has been limited to cities and towns; Filmsthan will bridge this gap and take silver screen to every corner of the country. Filmsthan’s journey will comprise screening of both Indian and International movies, it will also include renowned short movies and documentaries.

Local film makers and regional artisans will get a wider exposure with us.

Theatre artists are seldom recognized and appreciated in rural India, as their audience is mostly restricted to cities. Filmsthan will take theatre to every possible audience and raise the bar of the theatre art. Performances with a pinch of culture create an unparalleled essence.

We want our audience to experience that essence. Music is the soul of every show; aspiring musicians will get the opportunity to witness and interact with great musicians. The number of artisans involved in art forms has been declining in recent years. We aspire to give art a different face as profession and portray it as a promising career to pursue. All that artisans wish for is a platform of recognition, and that is exactly what we are creating.

Each Film Festival will have its own theme and purpose. Filmsthan will travel across the country to bring film makers and audience together. It will be a unique opportunity where art and art lovers will be seen together.
