MOTHER INDIA Screens at the 2012 Crown Heights Film Festival in NYC
November 8, 2012
MOTHER INDIA is an official selection for the 2012 Crown Heights Film Festival, and David had the opportunity to attend the screening on November 3, 2012 in New York City. The film was met with a warm reception, and the Q&A afterwards was quite engaging!
Film festivals are one of the strategic opportunities that we have to share the message of 31 million orphans in India. To this point, we have entered the film in over 20 different film festivals by submitting the full-length documentary and the festival’s entry fee ($50-100). Although many films submit to each festival, it is a great honor to be an “official selection” – and an even greater honor to win a category. (If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us spread the message of the film, click here to donate.)
Thank you to the Crown Heights Film Festival for the honor of sharing the message of 31 million Indian orphans with those in attendance!
About the Festival
The festival was founded in 2009 with the aim of creating a social forum centred on showcasing a curated selection of exceptional local and international films to visitors, long time residents and newcomers in Crown Heights – a rapidly changing neighborhood navigating a number of socio-economic issues including racial and cultural integration, local business growth, and police presence under “zero tolerance” directives. CHFF believes the community at large, through the medium of film, benefits from a festival that reflects the diversity Crown Heights embodies.
