What’s It All About?
In its 14th edition, the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) is a non-profit organisation devoted to a greater appreciation of Indian cinema and culture by showcasing films and promoting the diverse perspectives of the Indian diaspora.
The five-day festival provides a platform to premiere the latest, cutting-edge global Indian cinema and bridge the gap between the two entertainment industries – Hollywood and Indian cinema. The festival will showcase more than 25 films from
the Indian filmmaking community across the globe including 16 features and 11 shorts. IFFLA will host the three world premieres of Indian films, 10 US premieres and two North American premieres.
The festival will also features two LGBT titles, Hansal Mehta’s politically-charged Aligarh and the short Daaravtha by Nishant Roy Bombarde. It will also host the highly anticipated opening and closing red carpet galas, and the closing awards ceremony.
