The Indian Film Festival (IIFLA) will take place April 6-10 and return to its home at ArcLight Hollywood. Over 30 filmmakers will travel to Los Angeles to present their films, interact with audiences and participate in industry meetings. The festival’s presenting sponsor is Zee Cinema.

IFFLA is widely recognized as the premiere showcase of groundbreaking Indian cinema globally. This year’s program features award-winning prestige titles from the festival circuit and more women filmmakers than ever before.

Opening the festival is the ensemble powerhouse “Angry Indian Goddesses,” directed by Pan Nalin. Anu Menon’s poignant “Waiting,” starring Naseeruddin Shah and Kalki Koechlin, closes the festival on April 10.

Highlights include Hansal Mehta’s critically acclaimed and socially relevant “Aligarh,” Deepa Mehta’s gangster drama “Beeba Boys,” Sundance Film Festival’s sex comedy “Brahman Naman,” the world premiere of radical and hilarious “CRD” by Kranti Kanade; Rinku Kalsy’s documentary “For the Love of the Man,” on South Indian superstar Rajinikanth’s fans; Ruchika Oberoi’s genre-bending “Island City,” Neeraj Ghaywan’s directorial debut “Masaan,” which took home two awards at the 60th Cannes International Film Festival; Leena Yadav’s “Parched,” a story of four women in patriarchal culture; Prashant Nair’s Sundance winner “Umrika,” and “Visaraanai,” the Tamil gripping tale of the tentacles of systemic corruption in rural India.

    It is really great to see that films like Aligarh and Angry Indian Goddesses will be featured. A fresh breath of cine magic in the insidiously congested world of make-believe and glitz.

Kriti Sanon, who has worked in genres across drama, romance, comedy and historical, says she wants to explore herself as an actor.

“Everybody likes different kind of films here (in the country). If I want to cater to all kinds of audience and also explore myself as an actor in different genres, it is because that’s more fun. Otherwise you get stuck and it gets monotonous,” Kriti told IANS.
