The Great Indian Film and Literature Festival - GIFLIF - is coming to Bhopal for its 6th edition! This edition will be bigger and better than the previous ones with speakers and performers drawn in from different spheres of cinema, art, literature and culture and lot of diversity in themes for discussions and performances. 

Film Screenings are a key aspect of GIFLIF. This year, we will be screening two critically acclaimed films - Mukkabaaz in the presence of lead actor Vineet Kumar Singh and Aligarh in the presence of National Award winning director, Hansal Mehta. In addition, we would also be screening internationally acclaimed and Cannes winning documentary 'The Cinema Travellers, which has been directed by Shirly and Amit. 

Literature will be represented from several different genres at the latest edition of GIFLIF. The foremost mythologist in the country, Devdutt Pattanaik would be discussing about contemporary relevance of mythology; Anand Neelkantan would talk about his debut book, Asura; Lakshmi Narayan Tripathi, the first transgender person to represent Asia Pacific in the UN, would lead a discussion on identity; Gaurav Solanki would bring alive stories from his book, 'Gyarahvin A Ke Ladke' and the famous Bollywood lyricist and poet, Manoj Muntashir, also the Hindi writer and lyricist of Baahubali, would conduct an evening themed on shayari and cinema dialogues. 

The expanse of cultural exploration does not end here. Saurabh Shukla's play, Barff would be staged at GIFLIF. Jashn-e-Qalam, a storytelling initiative, will enact Patras Bokhari's 'Marhoom Ki Yaad Mein' and Harishankar Parsai's 'Inspector Matadin Chand Par'. Music is also going to be a part of flavours served at GIFLIF, with India's own one-man band Samar Mehdi and Sufi Rock band Alif from Kashmir closing the final day of the festival with a crescendo!
