The first annual UP Devotional Arts & Film Festival, which took place on March 8th at Srila Prabhupada’s Samadhi Auditorium in Mayapur, focused on screening music videos by devotee artists from around the world. 

UP stands for “unpublished.” “Just as we don’t eat food we are about to offer to the Deities, we wanted to present a collective untouched offering to Srila Prabhupada, Pancha Tattva and Sri Sri Radha Madhava,” says organizer Gour Govinda Das, a Croatian devotee with 20 years of experience as a professional photographer and filmmaker. 

The projects premiered at UP are selected by a group of professionals like Gour Govinda and co-organizer Hari Kirtan Kaufmann, with the intent to contribute to society’s upliftment by encouraging the spiritual, ethical and philanthropic development of the world at large.  

The festival is also intended to explore and nourish creative expressions of devotion and share the aesthetics of spiritual culture.
