Waterfront Festival of International Films


An International film festival in Lavasa would primarily fill two primary gaps – that of having an International Film Festival in an ideal location that is most befitting for the development of the creative industry and that of giving people in the region access to a wide variety of cinema.

Lavasa is a highly visible tourist destination across the world and has to have a film technology & business culture that is not visible to the world in terms of being an ideal location. At the same time, Lavasa is already emerging as attractive destination for National and International film makers establishing credits of a number of high end films and advertisements which have been successfully shot in the mesmerizing hill city of Lavasa. A film festival in Lavasa could therefore help synergize all the advantageous opportunities and over a period of time, work as a catalyst to convert the city into a prime focus of global cinema – be in terms of viewing, making or celebrating.

The founders of Waterfront Festival of International Films, therefore decided to start a virtual festival that will evolve into a grand showcase of world independent cinema in the beautiful lake side city set in the bosom of spectacular lush green hills, where we would be able to showcase cinema from all over the world and celebrate the festivity. It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce the opening of the city’s film festival, Waterfront Festival of International Film Festival Lavasa, which will be a virtual festival to honor the best of the world cinema creating a unique festivity cum creative platform beyond all the man made boundaries.An International film festival in Lavasa would primarily fill two primary gaps – that of having an International Film Festival in an ideal location that is most befitting for the development of the creative industry and that of giving people in the region access to a wide variety of cinema.
