Engage Diversity through Film
Building inclusive communities
Dates: To be announced Spring 2023
For more than 2 weeks last year, we enjoyed the magic created by film makers around the globe at the annual Indian Film Festival of Cincinnati, virtual edition. We created our watch parties, sat back and enjoyed the films in the safety of our homes. Once again this year in 2023, we are back with a hybrid format , some virtual format for the safety of our viewers, together with Opening and Closing films at the theatres. We are bringing back our Opening gala this year at the Art Musuem. We hope you join us and experience the fantastic diverse films of our filmmakers.
Created by the South Asian migration around the world, these films tell multi-generational stories across various cultures, genders, countries and religions. The films cover diverse languages, including English, that reflected the subcontinent and its migrant population. All films were subtitled in English and some were made right here in the US. . Ratee Apana, Founding Executive Director of IFFCincy states, “Cincinnati plays host to an incredible world-class cinema in the heart of its vibrant and developing downtown district. We were thrilled at the opportunity to have a Virtual Film festival and share the passions and work of our global film makers through their films that cover a range of human experiences and conditions which will resonate with all communities. The festival has received wide media attention at home as well as internationally”.
Thank you all filmmakers, media and audiences for your support and we hope you have a wonderful year ahead.
