MAVA has organised a travelling film festival with the themes of gender, masculinity, sexuality and relationships. After Coimbatore and Delhi, the two festival reached Bengaluru for screenings at Jain University. The festival, called Samabava, is the brainchild of Harish Sadani, co-founder of MAVA.
