Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles Winners


Celebration! That was the mantra throughout the six days of the 2012 Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA). The festival concluded Sunday evening (April 15) with a red carpet and gala 10th anniversary fete that included the Los Angeles premiere of Prashant Bhargava's PATANG and the presentation of the festival's Grand Jury and Audience Choice Awards, followed by an after party.

This year the festival hosted 45 filmmakers and screened 33 features, documentaries, and short films at ArcLight Hollywood, home of IFFLA since its inception. Founder Christina Marouda said, "This milestone anniversary has truly led to an incredible celebration year and has become our most successful festival yet. IFFLA is proud to be a catalyst for Indian filmmakers and cinema in Hollywood. With themes that strike a universal chord among audiences, the popularity of our festival continues to grow each year. As we enter our next decade, we look forward to offering audiences the unique opportunity to experience the rich textures and subtle complexities that make Indian cinema so special."

Receiving the Grand Jury Prizes were: Karan Gour's CORRODE (KSHAY) for Best Feature; Best Documentary went to Gemma Atwal's MARATHON BOY with an Honorable Mention to Rajan Khosa's GATTU; Best Short honors went to Neeraj Ghaywan's "Noise (Shor)" with Ravi Kapoor's "The 5" and actress Huma Qureshi for her performance in "Sujata" each receiving an honorable mention.
