liHfe Vision:             liHfe = life + HAPPINESS

To add to everyone’s life the “Happiness of Creativity” and a higher form of Happiness- “Intellectual Happiness” (©MG), which gives one the serenity, stability, security & strength to face all that life throws one’s way.

liHfe Mission:           liHfe focusses on “Happiness Through Creativity”.

In the current scenario of the yearlong COVID-19 pandemic which has had us all tremendously apprehensive, exhausted, traumatized and uncertain about everything in life or maybe even life itself, the ‘Oxygen of Happiness’ (©MG) needs to be maintained at a critical level.

LOGIHQ, a HAPPINESS enterprise, in keeping with its motto of ‘lifting people to a happier plane’, in January 2021 launched liHfe, a unique International HAPPINESS Film Festival, to generate the ‘Oxygen of Happiness’ in creators & audiences alike.

In February 2021, the United Nations (UN) declared 2021 as the “International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development”. The World Health Organization (WHO) stresses on the role of Arts & Creativity in healing and tackling Mental Health issues, especially those caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

liHfe aims to be a meaningful, significant little drop in this ocean of efforts to help & heal society in facing & recovering from the aftermath of the coronavirus.

Inaugural Theme: “HAPPINESS & MENTAL HEALTH during COVID”
