EORTV, India’s fastest growing OTT Platform and a web streaming app has announced its innovative programming slate hinged on Pride festivals around the world. EORTV has streamed four Pride festivals thus far- Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Goa. Taking a step forward and keeping consumers’ preferences in mind, EORTV has now collaborated with Goa Pride Festival to launch a film making competition. The festival in turn is organised by Moustache Escapes.
In a bid to extend its key agenda of inclusion, this special programme will promote new and budding filmmakers, artists & technicians and the winning film will make it to the EORTV platform. The pack will consist of one best winning film in the Professional and Mobile category each, best director, best cinematographer and best actors who will in turn get a chance to work on EORTV’s projects which are under production. Other than covering the ‘Pride Festival’ and streaming the best film from the competition, the prize distribution ceremony and naming of the winners will also be a part of EORTV’s content slate.
The content of these films that will partake in the competition will have to be based on the LGBTQIA+ community but could be from various genres such as drama, comedy, romance, thrillers, docu-dramas etc. The next edition of Goa Pride Festival will be held from 7th April 2023 to 9th April 2023 at Sangria, Vagator, Goa. The festival is a carnival of various activities, screenings and performances. The Goa Pride Festival stands to show acceptance, solidarity, inclusion, love and Pride.

“Over the past one and a half years, we have witnessed a high appetite for LGBTQ focused movies and engaging content. Since the launch of EORTV, we have curated and produced the best stories on our platform across genres. This new programming slate is going a step further to create a platform for the young talent to create good content and give them a chance to reach a huge viewership through our channel. We are happy to partner with the Goa Pride Festival as our aim is to find strength through love, inclusivity and unite the community with mainstream society. There is no better way of doing it than hands on where we actually give an opportunity to people to come and work with us.”, said Deepak Pandey, Founder of EORTV.
