About

Fashion industry is the second most polluting industry on the planet. Its environmental impacts include all natural resources – waterways, forests, soil, oceans, landfill. The industry is a mass employer and touches many lives throughout its long and complex value chain. The decade of 2010 has seen a large uptake of sustainable initiatives in mainstream business. However, knowledge about issues in the masses is lacking. There is a growing need to connect these issues with the young and old. And films can be an effective way of generating awareness.

GreenStitched Film Festival (GFF) is a day long screening of movies and documentaries on sustainable fashion. The GFF 2017 included movies on various topics material to the fashion industry – cotton, waste, design, slow and fast fashion, social issues. The event saw a footfall of 110 people and hosted insightful discussions on the subject.

This event was attended by sustainability professionals, students, academia, designers, sourcing and marketing professionals, curious people of Bangalore and beyond.

GFF 2018 is coming!

We believe that awareness about our consumer patterns, shifting to conscious products, asking questions like where our products come from and where they go, are important micro steps towards a more sustainable tomorrow.
