Voices from the Waters

International Travelling Film Festival.


Voices from the Waters seeks to add to this consciousness as concerns regarding the existence and well-being of our water-bodies are now being voiced in our mainstream societies. Now more than ever, there is a call for awareness, dialogue and debate to inform the actions on which the future of our living-planet depends. Voices from the Waters 2014 - the 9th International Film Festival on Water invites you to be a part of the festival by contributing short, documentary, animation and feature films on water and related issues.

Voices from the Waters is conceived as a travelling film festival. The selected films after being premiered in Bangalore will be taken to educational institutions, governmental and non-governmental organizations, small towns and villages across the world followed by discussions.
