The New York Indian Film Festival is North America’s oldest film festival which features cinema from India, and the Indian Diaspora. Presented by the Indo-American Arts Council, NYIFF celebrates alternative, independent cinema from the global Indian community. The festival is dedicated to providing filmmakers, actors, and industry professionals a platform to showcase their work, as well as creating an environment where filmmakers may exchange ideas with one another, and interact with discerning and diverse audiences, journalists, and aficionados. NYIFF is now accepting submissions from filmmakers. The 23rd Annual New York Indian Film Festival will be held in April 2023 where the chosen films will be screened.
