The Great Indian Film and Literature Festival, or GIFLIF, is India’s first Film and Literature Festival. It
brings together the domains of cinema and literature and facilitates a dialogue between the two. Good literature is a precursor to the good film and both are dependent entities. Realising this fact, the festival was conceptualized in 2012, and after a lot of research and hard work, the first edition of GIFLIF went to floors in December 2015.
Since then, the festival has consistently endeavored to bring together eminent personalities from the domain of cinema, art and literature, and curate sessions which are of relevance to a diverse audience. In addition, we conduct film screenings, theatre presentations, musical concerts, workshops, as well as local contests. The idea and essence to provide cultural and intellectual stimulation to the audience for three whole days.
Our festival already has three successfully running chapters – in Bhopal (2016, 2017, 2018), Raipur (2018) and Gurgaon (2015, 2016) – and we hope to diversify to more cities soon.
