Punith Mahesh’s graphic to be part of Kashish 2014, the only mainstream queer film festival
Hot shot fashion designer Wendell Rodricks has picked the poster submitted by Hyderabad-based graphic designer Punith Mahesh as the winning design of the Kashish International Poster Competition.
This poster design contest saw entries from across Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Goa and Shillong. There were some from Malaysia, Indonesia and Estonia too. Punith’s poster would be the look of the fifth edition of Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival, scheduled to be held from May 21 to May 25.
Kashish 2014 is South Asia’s and India’s biggest and only mainstream queer film festival to be held in Mumbai at a multiplex and at Alliance Française de Bombay. It is the first and only gay and lesbian film festival in India to be held in a mainstream theatre. The competition asked designers to creatively interpret this year’s festival theme ‘Dare to Dream’.
Wendell said of the winning design, “The stark graphics and the concept of exploring the mind makes this poster a winner. Explaining his design, Punith said that the butterflies represent the flight of human ideas, imagination and innovation, while the stars depict the infinite world out there for the ideas to soar.”
