About Manatarang :

Manatarang is the biennial film festival organized by Institute for Psychological Health (IPH*) since 2010. It is a unique film festival that is dedicated to the theme of mental health and is entering its fourth edition this year. It is held during the mental health week in October.

With every edition we have highlighted different  facets of mental health. To do this we divide the festival into short theme based sessions and have experts from media and mental health on our discussion panel. Childhood, Parenting, Ageing, Stress management,  Caregiving,  Adolescence, Overcoming Odds,  Understanding disorders are some of the themes that we have highlighted through this festival over the years. 

Eminent  personalities  from  films,  literary  world  and  theatre  like  Dr.  Mohan Agashe, Govind Nihalani, Irawati Harshe, Sumitra Bhave, Sunil Sukhtankar, Swati Chitnis,  Amruta  Subhash,  Sandee  Kulkarni,  Shubhada  Chaukar,  Monika Gajendra gadkar, Ashok Rane, Purushottam Berde, etc.  have been  on  our panel.

Dr.  Anand  Nadkarni  himself,  along  with  our  team  of  mental  health  experts  is
present through the entire proceedings.

Over  the  years  we  have  evolved  in terms  of  our  themes  and  style  of presentation and multiplied in terms of popularity. The first edition (2010) had
only  feature  films.  The  feature  films and  the  ensuing  discussion  would  be very engrossing, but left our audiences exhausted  and  still  with  many
unanswered questions. 

So  from  the  second  edition  (2012) onwards  we  decided  to  stick  to documentaries  and  short  films  only. This proved to be better suited for our audiences and also our goal of creating awareness about mental health. A short film would send across the intended message effectively and also act as a trigger to a lively discussion.

In the third edition (2014) we also had a competition section where upcoming and debutant filmmakers would get a platform to showcase their film. This received an overwhelming response.
