😞 We don't have a program for this festival yet. Would you like to help us add it?
Due to the intense outbreak of Covid in India, we have moved our judging dates to June 30 and the festival to Aug 5-15. Sorry for the inconvenience. The Indian Film Festival of Cincinnati is the only Indian/ South Asian Film Festival of its kind in Cincinnati and Ohio. The sixth annual festival will be held in June 2021 as a virtual edition. The opening film and gala is planned at the Cincinnati Art Museum ( Covid 19 permitting). The festival is dedicated to providing filmmakers, actors, and industry professionals a platform to showcase their work, and exchange ideas with one another, and interact with film personnel in the Hollywood space, as well as journalists, diverse audiences, and film aficionados. Many films of our past festival selections have subsequently won awards or been featured on streaming media such as Netflix or Amazon. Designed to engage diversity through film, the festival selects films that speak to an American audience through topics and issues that embrace the common human values across our cultures. We screen premieres of feature, and short films made in and about the Indian/South Asian subcontinent, or it's people or made by Indians. In an effort to bring the cross-cultural film makers together, local Tri-State & Ohio film makers are requested to submit their films too. Locally made films must speak to diversity and our common human values. The festival is a joint collaboration with the Cincinnati Sister cities (India) and the Art Museum of Cincinnati.
