Dear Meetup Group Members:
The 13th Annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) is North America's oldest and most prestigious destination for feature films, documentaries, and shorts from and about the Indian subcontinent. NYIFF is a once-a-year opportunity to experience the rich and diverse film cultures of the Indian subcontinent through a mix of film screenings, discussions, industry panels, nightly parties, an awards ceremony, and gala red carpet events.
NYIFF is approaching quickly -- April 30th - May 4th, 2013, featuring South Asian films in many different languages and covering social issues. The schedule of films is now available online and can be purchased directly here
Please RSVP if you will be attending.
The following South Asian celebrities will be presenting awards at the Closing Night Ceremony:
Sakina Jaffrey (House of Cards)
Sarita Choudhury (Homeland)
Asif Mandvi (The Daily Show)
Suketu Metha (Maximum City - author)
NYIFF currently has a theater for screening the films and will be bringing directors and lead actors to the festival and it would be a great opportunity for all of you to explore South Asian cinema. I look forward to seeing you at the film festival!
