Throughout the most recent years, discussions about equality have pervaded the Indian film industry. The Kalakari Film Festival is taking steps towards getting female talent recognized, particularly if they’re behind the camera. For as long as there have been movies, there have been women making them.

The 2021-22 edition of the international Kalakari Film Festival by Rishi Nikam will promote movies by 500+ women filmmakers at this year’s festival. These movies will be in English, Hindi, Marathi, and other regional Indian languages.
