03/12/2020

Given the recent developments around coronavirus, IFFLA has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this year’s Festival from April 1st-5th to a later, to-be-determined date in 2020. In doing so, we stand in solidarity with leading cultural institutions and festivals and the recommendations of the CDC and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, by taking proactive steps towards combating the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The well-being of our guests, partners and staff is paramount. We will continue to closely monitor the situation for the best timing to reschedule the festival later this year.
- Christina Marouda, IFFLA Chair of the Board

BECAUSE WE ARE GIRLS | IFFLA

#IFFLA2020 is proud to be presenting 50% of premieres directed by #female directors! One of our wonderful pics include Baljit Sangra's BECAUSE WE ARE GIRLS.

The film is a is a shivering homage to our childhood selves that scarcely had the language to express what was done to us. It is an introspective window that allows us to contemplate our own #mothers and #grandmothers — and wonder about the secrets that they’ve carried with them. What all in our #families have we unseen?

At a time when Indian girls are still beholden to the same cage, #BECAUSEWEAREGIRLS is an act of courage that celebrates women reclaiming their lost power in the face of willful negligence and irreparable harm. An essential film.

The film screens April 4th at 4:30pm. See you there!

BECAUSE WE ARE GIRLS 1980’s. The Pooni’s — a conservative Punjabi family in small town Canada. A household steeped in patriarchal values. A place where girls are raised on a steady diet of Bollywood nostalgia that teaches them to be demure and subservient to men. Raped systematically over a pe...

We interviewed director Dar Gai for her wonderfully heart-warming feature “Namdev Bhau, In Search Of Silence”, that premiered at last year’s #IFFLA.

Dar was born and raised in #Keiv, Ukraine, where she acted in and directed dozens of plays. After obtaining a Bachelors and Masters in Philosophy in Kiev, Dar was invited to teach at Whistling Woods International in #Mumbai, and has been writing and directing films, TV and commercials in India ever since. In 2018, Dar wrote and directed a large #TVC campaign for telecom giant, Jio.

Spotlight on last year’s wonderful short, #BEBAAK, that we word premiered at #IFFLA last year:

Unable to rely on her cash-strapped #family to further her education, an ambitious and fiercely independent young woman seeks out a scholarship from a conservative #Muslim trust.

When she discovers that the money comes with strings attached, her #liberal Muslim values will be put to the test.Based on true events, this sharp directorial debut tells its story with sensitivity and urgency.

Spotlight on #MeghaRamaswamy’s “THE ODDS”, which word premiered at #IFFLA last year.

On the day of a major exam that could help determine her future, eccentric Vivek decides to take a slightly strange stand against the system. When things don’t go as she planned, well-heeled and cute Ashwin gets caught up in her antics and the two play truant from #school.

As the young would-be couple wanders the streets of #Mumbai and gets to know each other, the past, present and future of their relationship play out in hilarious and magical ways. Deftly dodging the stereotypical approaches that focus on teenage women in terms of matrimony or victimhood, THE ODDS is the special kind of tale that revels in the joys of being #young.

More on “#TheODDS” and all the amazing films premiered at IFFLA on our website: www.indianfilmfestival.org!

INDIAN FILM FESTIVAL OF LOS ANGELES

The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) is a nonprofit organization devoted to a greater appreciation of Indian cinema and culture by showcasing films, supporting emerging filmmakers, and promoting the diverse perspectives of the Indian diaspora.

Each year the festival features a rich mix of film programs designed to build and support the growing interest in the Indian entertainment industry. This includes programming that cultivates an audience for Indian films while supporting filmmakers of Indian descent in career development as they navigate the larger studio system in Hollywood. IFFLA’s industry programs include the One-on-One program where film industry professionals from major and independent production and distribution companies are invited to participate in meetings with the IFFLA filmmakers; and panel discussions with speakers from the film industry.

VENUE

The 18th annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) will take place April 1-5, 2020 at Regal L.A. LIVE, the state-of-the-art, world-class cinema in the heart of Los Angeles’ vibrant and developing downtown district. The Opening Night Gala will be at ArcLight Hollywood.

PROGRAMMING

IFFLA showcases a combination of features, shorts and documentaries. The festival provides programming and activities that no other film festival in Los Angeles offers and serves a community of Indian and international filmmakers that has the potential of reaching a crossover audience. IFFLA offers the Los Angeles community a unique opportunity to learn about India’s multi-faceted culture and long history of filmmaking.

QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSIONS

Filmmakers and cast are invited to present their films and share their experiences with the audiences.

AWARDS

IFFLA offers jury awards for Best Feature and Best Short as well as Audience Choice Awards in the same categories.

ONE-ON-ONE

Industry professionals from major and independent production and distribution companies are invited to participate in one-on-one 10-minute meetings with the participating filmmakers. The objective of this program is to offer a new generation of talented filmmakers the opportunity to meet with players of the North American film industry and provide them with a unique opportunity to advance their careers.

SPECIAL EVENTS

The Opening and Closing Night Galas begin with a screening of a feature film followed by receptions that include Indian culinary delights, music and dance performances. In addition, the festival presents tributes and retrospectives to acclaimed Indian filmmakers.

Searching for Jung Indian film in 1996
“Darkness Visible” will be playing at the AMC Stadium Citywalk 19, premiering on February 8th. I recently watched the trailer to this film and I’m super excited to see it. The Indian-influenced film stars Jaz Deol and is directed by Neil Biswas. It is a supernatural thriller and looks spiritually frightening. It’s going to be an awesome experience seeing it on the big screen in theaters. I highly recommend going to see it!
