Assortment of Movies: In the spreadsheet linked below, there is a separate sheet with an assorted list of movies, which would give you an idea. (Final selection of movies to be projected will done by the organizers, subject to availability.)

Rare Opportunity: This festival creates appropriate avenues for this work to be shared with the rest of the world with an aim of providing more exposure for our community’s upcoming young movie makers & presenters and at the same time creating awareness about Sikhs.
