About Us

 

 

The Great Indian Film and Literature Festival (GIFLIF) is India’s first Film and Literature Festival. Literature, film screening, music, poetry, plays, discussions, film-making workshops, stand-up amorphous (a new form of stand up wherein the whole idea is to promote independent artists – poet, comedian, magician, painter, musician etc) is what GIFLIF is all about. The idea is to involve and entertain an audience with unique sessions, extravaganzas and provide them with 3 days of intellectual stimulation.

 

GIFLIF has 2 successfully running chapters – Gurgaon and Bhopal. 2 editions have been conducted in Gurgaon and 1 in Bhopal. While GIFLIF invites eminent personalities from the stream of film and literature for various sessions, book readings, discussions and extravaganzas, it also conducts contests to promote upcoming artists. As of now, GIFLIF runs 2 contests:

 

1. Slam Poetry contest: A poetry contest is conducted and best poets get a chance to recite their piece of art at the main event. Winners also receive a cash prize.

2. Film contest: In our endeavour to promote independent film-makers we open global film entries for different genres such as animation, short films, documentary, feature and experimental (for submission visit https://filmfreeway.com/festival/GIFLIF) from July to October every year. Selecting best films is the key responsibility of our Jury Chief Padma Shri AK Bir and his team. Selected films are screened during both the chapters – Gurgaon as well as Bhopal.

 

Winner film-makers also get a cash prize.
