We are glad to present ‘4th International Arogya Film Festival 2020’ on 2nd May, 2020. The 4th edition of Arogya Film Festival is exclusively dedicated to “Management of Lifestyle Disorders Through AYUSH System” and supporting ‘World Cancer Day’, which is observed by the United Nations. It is an initiative of “Namo Gange Trust”.

The First, Second & Third editions of “International Arogya Film Festival” were acknowledged as one of the most innovative festival in the field of Yoga Health & Wellness.  We believe that film has the power to convey message, to communicate stories, to stir emotions, to inspire, to encourage action and to redress inequities in Health, Environment, Culture, and Tourism.  This festival will emphasize on various aspects of Health and wellness and journey of social preventive health from ancient to the modern era.  This festival will also provide an insight of the yoga movement and will help to create mass awareness about Health & Wellness through the medium of films.

  • the origination team must think about
    They do not give official selection certificate, they just give participation certificate accept winner
    this is very irritating to convene them about
