We’re finally doing it. In Oct. Driving with Selvi will have its European and North American splashy theatrical premieres in London at Bertha Doc House and soon after, in Toronto at the Hot Docs Cinema. It’s a dream that’s 12 years in the making and has involved so many of you along the way. We are so excited to bring the film back to London where it all began last year at Raindance, and back home to Toronto. Come celebrate with us.

Help Us Bring Selvi to Canada and Europe
We knew we couldn’t have a Driving with Selvi theatrical premiere without our star. So, this October, we’re flying Selvi back to North America and Europe. With her, we’ll usher in 30+ screenings in 35 days, at festivals, schools, temples, theaters and who knows where. We’re looking for help to get her here, and keep her happy.
If you’re interested, please email us.
- Air mile points for Selvi's overseas travel.
- Volunteer drivers to help us get around.
- Volunteers to help out at our screenings.
- Host families to take Selvi and her two-year-old out for the day!
- Social media gurus, Kannada Translators, and...
Selvi will love to see all of you again (and so will I) – so please come to our theatrical screenings and help us give her a warm welcome!
All the best, Elisa and the Driving with Selvi team
