16th Annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles



The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) will present a diverse and prestigious lineup of narrative and documentary features, short films, and galas at its 16 annual festival running April 11 -15 at Regal L.A. LIVE: A Barco Innovation Center in Los Angeles. Opening the festival on April 11 is IN THE SHADOWS, starring Manoj Bajpayee in a tour de force performance as a reclusive shopkeeper who vows to rescue his young neighbor from abuse at the hands of his father directed by Dipesh Jain. The festival will also hold a memorial tribute to the late, beloved Bollywood actress Sridevi. IFFLA will screen a 2K print of Sridevi’s 1989 hit CHANDNI, courtesy of Yash Raj Films. It will also include a master class with The Big Bang Theory star Kunal Nayyar. He will sit down for a moderated discussion about his career beginnings, his path to stardom on U.S. television’s highest rated comedy, and to advise the next generation of artists on how to gain a foothold in a competitive industry. Festival will close with the Los Angeles premiere of VILLAGE ROCKSTARS, one of the most lauded Indian films on the festival circuit in the past year. The film is directed by emerging Indian filmmaker Rima Das. The film, written, shot, edited and directed by Das, is a touching coming of age story of a ten-year-old girl in a remote Assamese village who dreams of buying a guitar and starting her own rock band.
Gala tickets and passes as well as regular screening tickets are now available at www.indianfilmfestival.org.
