As anyone who’s spent time in Dharamshala knows, the town crams a massively diverse population into a pretty small municipality—Gaddi villagers, Tibetan refugees, Paharis, Kashmiris, Nepalis, Punjabis, migrant workers, ex-pats—occupied in an equally diverse range of professions. The prospect of engaging with such an array of communities can be overwhelming but, having initiated a range of outreach projects over the past years, we are proud to develop and expand them for DIFF 2018. These outreach projects range from hosting community screenings and special screenings to children’s and student’s programmes and film appreciation competitions.

As the festival counts down to the opening night on 1st November 2018, DIFF ON THE ROAD is going places. A selection of feature films and documentaries from DIFF 2017 is making its way through cities across the country, so that audiences who could not make it to the festival still have the opportunity to sample some of its offerings. DIFF ON THE ROAD has been built in collaboration with different organisations to host screenings: India International Centre – Delhi, Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, Bangalore International Centre – Bengaluru, Lost the Plot – Pune and The Hive – Mumbai over the months of August and September.
