Woodpecker International Film Festival

WELCOME TO WIFF-2016
 
Woodpecker International Film Festival (WIFF) is India's premier competitive film festival focusing on issue-based cinema. The first edition of the festival was organised in 2013 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. Launched in the backdrop of the completion of 100 years of Indian Cinema, the festival was a tribute to the Indian cinema for its ability to nurture diverse genres of films and filmmaking traditions in the country. 
 
Today, Cinema is at an important crossroad. While the distinction between mainstream and parallel cinema is almost getting blurred, a new breed of alternative filmmakers, successfully blending entertainment and meaningful cinema, is taking ground. Woodpecker International Film Festival (WIFF) aims to showcase this rich mélange of visual creativity to promote films and filmmakers focusing on socially pertinent themes.
 
WHY THIS FESTIVAL & FORUM?
 
The last one decade in India has seen tremendous changes particularly on communication and technological fronts. With easy accessibility to new technology and availability of new communication channels, reach and impact of visual messages has grown significantly, both in rural and urban areas. Be it short films, documentaries or social advertisements, they have now become an immensely powerful tool of communications aimed towards bringing desired social change. WFF thus would like to comprehensively cover the wide spectrum of issues that have caught the attention of new breed of filmmakers in the recent past, be it gender, public health or environment. A major attraction of the film festival would be forum activities. Seminars, conferences, workshops and master classes to help filmmakers and film enthusiasts explore contemporary issues, network with professional associates, hone their filmmaking skills and share the power of storytelling through cinema.
 
ORGANISER
 
The festival and forum is part of the 'Cinema for Change' initiative of CMSR Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation based in New Delhi. The Foundation, a registered body under the Indian Trust Act, has been established to harness the power of information, education and communications to bring positive social change.

Water Front Festival of International Films Lavasa

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.
