Celebrating life and the bounty of the Himalayan environment are central to the festival.
The Shimla Film Festival connects tradition with current trends, brings together producers, directors, actors, scriptwriters, musicians, technicians to enable audiences to gain a deeper understanding of film craft and partake of nature’s bounty in serene settings.
To imbibe, express and exhibit films as a multimedia art form of complete creative expression
Bridging the global with the local and the local with the global, Shimla Film Festival aspires to bring together filmmakers and artists – young, amateurs and professional, to showcase genres of film craft that explore the themes of changing life patterns, conflict, compassion, love, tragedy, a prevailing unsettled peace, migration, environment, wildlife and other concerns.
Multimedia craft of film making being one complete medium and there being a new tribe of very talented filmmakers, who are rooted to their lands, one of the primary motive of the film festival is to capture latent talent and provide them a platform to screen their film.
