    The conflict in Kashmir has had a profound impact on the region's film industry.

    Many of the cinemas have been converted for other functions since they were forcibly shut down by a rebel group.

    Residents have largely relied on DVDs and tapes to keep in touch with the latest artistic offerings.

    But now, a new film festival is hoping to change all this by reviving Kashmir’s once strong cinematic tradition.

    Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego reports.
