French film ‘The Shiny Shrimps’ to open the 11th edition of Kashish International Queer Film Festival

The 11th edition of Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival is all set to open on July 22nd with the French film The Shiny Shrimps, directed by Maxime Govare and Cédric Le Gallo. The film is about a homophobic swimmer trying to coach an amateur gay water-polo team to qualify for the Gay Games in Croatia was a huge festival hit and has been one of the few queer sports comedy films that has won critical and popular acclaim.

The festival closes with the yet-unreleased 2020 Indian feature film Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele. The film is about a young boy and a girl going on a road trip that turns their life upside down and makes them understand what real love is! The film starring Anshuman Jha and Zareen Khan will have its Indian premiere at the festival.

While the opening film is restricted to play only in India for 24 hours, the closing film will be available to audiences across the world, live-streamed for the duration of the film.

“We are thrilled to be announcing our opening and closing films for KASHISH 2020 Virtual. The two films are so different from each other, yet resonate with the theme of this year’s KASHISH – ‘Moving Forward, Together!’ which is meant to highlight stories about different identities – gay, lesbian, transgender and queer. The festival opens with a film that is funny and campy and ends with a film that touches your heart,” said Sridhar Rangayan, festival director.

Harish Vyas, writer & director of Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele said, “I always wanted to make a film on love and for me, love is all about giving, about acceptance and a film which talks about love which has no caste, no religion, no gender. The film talks about this core idea through Veer and Mansi. And our idea was to make this film like any other story. We didn’t want to treat these characters differently from others.

Vyas further added, “For me, if we talk equality then we should celebrate acceptance, and this film represents that. I had offered the film to Anshuman as an actor after our collaboration in Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain and him coming on as a producer was a blessing. I truly hope the audiences around the world love it at KASHISH, like the love we got in New York.”

“Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele is a film very close to my heart because it deals with a beautiful story of friendship and love, between a gay man and a lesbian woman. It is my first experience in the independent space of film-making, and it was a challenge, but I really enjoyed it”, said Zareen Khan, the lead actor of the film.

Kashish 2020 Virtual will screen 157 films from 42 countries out of which 30 films are from India.
