“Discover hand-skills of India”

The Heritage Film Festival (HFF) was initiated in 2012, as part of aadhar’s mission to raise awareness about India’s rich artistic heritage.

aadhar is a charitable trust whose mission is to develop programs and opportunities that support traditional artisans and craftspeople, in an effort to sustain their livelihood, and contribute to the revitalisation of the collective cultural heritage of India.

aadhar, which in Gujarati literally means “to support”. aadhar acts as a collaborator and facilitator among artisan communities, individuals, public and private organisations.

In last 4 years we are blessed to have individuals and organisations to collaborate to make Heritage Film Festival a success and reach to possibly more audiences. For more details check our website http://hff.aadhar-india.org/

We further aspire to forge collaborations with individuals / organisations to take the screening of films to a wider, more diverse audience. In this regard, we wish to take the festival to various parts of India as well as across the globe.
