NEW YORK: The Indian American Arts Council (IAAC) will host the 2019 New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) from May 7 to 12 at the Village East Cinemas in the Lower East Si, New York.
Festival director Aseem Chhabra said that “a wonderful collection of new films from India will be showcased during this festival period”.

“This selection of exceptional titles showcases the beauty, power and glory of film story telling at its best. Our audience will fall in love with their journeys,” Chhabra said

Chairman Nirmal Mattoo said that the 2019 NYIFF selection is the culmination of a global search process by the festival director and curators.

“We will present award winning releases. We will showcase for the first time, regional movies which present the depth and breadth of India. Original, fresh, transformative dramas will give the audience the deep immersive experiences that they seek,” Mattoo stated.

NYIFF is one of the oldest film festivals that screen premieres of feature, documentary and short films made from, of, and about the Indian subcontinent in the independent, art house, alternate and diaspora genres. It seeks to create awareness of Indian cinema, entertain and educate North Americans about the real India, and add to the amazing cultural diversity of New York City.

IAAC supports all artistic disciplines in classical, fusion, folk and innovative forms influenced by the arts of India. For further information, visit
