festival, which has been held since 2004 on the beautiful Puri
beach in Orissa, in eastern India, has impeccable logic. It
cheerfully bumps off all hierarchy, competition, juries and
awards. Not only filmmakers, but also artists from other fields
like music, theatre, painting, sculpture, dance, literature and
photography are encouraged to participate and show their work.
It is an informal, intimate gathering of artists; films are
shown in makeshift tents by day and in the open air after sun
down, right into the wee hours. The idea is to have an
alternative, democratic platform, away from the bureaucracy and
big cities, and where just about anybody can participate. Itís
like a magical carnival by the sea for five days and nights.
