IFFI 52, 052: Veterans not allowed to contribute

IFFI 52, 052: Veterans not allowed to contribute Among International Film Festival of India (IFFI)’s regular attendees, one man claims that he attended the first ever IFFI, held in 1952, as a 16 year-old. I am not aware whether there was any age restriction back in 1952, but for several decades since then, you cannot attend an IFFI unless you are 18 years old. He was there at IFFI 52, 2021, too.

Film Review: '1985’ by Yen Tan - a compelling watch

Film review by Shweta Parande first published on Mumbai Cinema Paradiso blog for IFFI 2018. Just when you were starting to think that films on people of the LGBTQI community and their coming out, and especially those affected with the Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), were getting too common, comes a new film that seems like a game-changer. The film is '1985', directed by Yen Tan, a 2018 release that was screened at the 49th International F...

MIFF 2018, XI: 400 years of the Negro
