This one-of-a-kind tribal film festival has been conceptualized and meticulously designed to emphasize on the vibrancy of tribal lives, culture, social challenges, and other aspects of tribal existence by combining these fragments into a composite audio-visual medium.
It aims to raise awareness on the richness and diversity of tribal cultures as well as its significance, among urban educated people, in order to impart respect and affection for the community.
