Voices from the Waters 2010 : The 5th international film festival on Water

'Voices from the waters' marks its fifth year into voicing issues and awareness building

2010  begins  as  a  critical  year  not  just  for  ‘Voices  from  the  Waters’  which  completes  five years  of existence  but   for environmental   consciousness  on   the   whole,   as   the   thoughts  and   concerns regarding  the   existence  and   well being   of  our   rivers   and  streams  are   now  being   voiced  in  the mainstream. Now  more  than  ever,  there is  a  call for  awareness, dialogue and  debate to  inform the actions on  which  the  survival  of  our  lifeworlds   depend. We  are  at  an  instant of much  possibilities and  hope.  We are  in  search  of the  voices  that  will guide  us  to  a critical  departure from  the  current paradigms  towards  our  vision  of better futures.

‘Voices  from   the  Waters  2010:   The  5th  International  Film  Festival   on  Water’,  the  biggest,   most dynamic  and  diverse   platform  of  its  kind  invites   you  to  be  a  part   of  the  festival  by  contributing short, documentary, animation and  feature films  on  water  and related issues.
