Filmograph Film Festivals are organized every year in Ahmedabad since 2011 by various civil society groups. Film being the powerful media chosen by Filmograph to portray some of the issues embroiled in theme based films.

Every year there are two major film festivals one is based on feature films while the second is based on documentary films. The main objective is to engage audience, the very people of city to interact, speak up and think over the burning issues that should disturb us, engage us to talk about and act upon in some way or the other way that we can do. 

Filmograph is especially keen to engage youngsters to get involved in these festivals. Filmograph link audience with famous film personalities like actors, film directors and writers to discuss about the films, understand social issues covered in the film and special perceptions which are used for making such films. In all idea is also to bring diverse perceptions of audience on one stratum so proper sensitization can be occurred through debates.
