Lotus Visual Productions provides a medium for performance artists and filmmakers via sponsorships, grants, and production opportunities to express their creativity towards generating vibrant and dynamic conversations.
We strongly believe in the power of our creative projects to foster better understanding and bridge-building between communities while encouraging aspiring filmmakers and artists to bring their creative vision to reality, pushing the envelope on social taboos and acceptance.
We focus on bringing stories of the South Asian lgbt+ community worldwide to the screen via a broad array of projects ranging from feature films, feature-length documentaries, short films, short docs, and social media projects. With active projects in various stages of production in India and the UK, we strive for a robust and authentic representation of lgbt+ experiences on screen and provide opportunities for community members on and off the screen. We also promote South Asian lgbt+ cinema by organizing theatrical screenings in the UK and curating films for film festivals and corporate screenings.

The QDrishti Grant – Since 2016 we have instituted the QDrishti grant that is disbursed via Kashish Arts Foundation to the aspiring filmmakers in India to encourage their creativity and promote their next short film project. The grant consists of a cash award plus mentorship towards scriptwriting as well as other technical aspects of filmmaking. The short film then premiers at the next Kashish International Film Festival held in Mumbai, India. More details on past projects can be found here.
