Free Spirit Film Festival 2013 21 to 23 October - 4 pm - Day School McLeod Ganj
We are happy to announce that we are overwhelmed with film submissions from different countries. We have tried our best to screen all the films that were submitted, over the three days of our festival, but unfortunately there was just not enough time for all.
Here is the full list of films to be screened, with schedule.
The film Arise by Tibetan filmmaker Pema Dhondup will have its India premiere at our Festival.
The Free Spirit Film Festival has become a highlight of the budding film culture in McLeod Ganj. It's the only annual film festival that screens unique and extraordinary films from around the world. Many of the films may never be seen again even on big cinema screens.
This Festival, first started in 2004, screens a diverse range of films — feature, short, documentary, music video, animation, and experimental, of any length — to expose people to different ideas, cultures, art, movements, and activism from all over the world.
Our fund-raising drive for the Festival has not gained momentum. If you would like, you can contribute at our RocketHub page.
