In this week’s episode Moviewallas had a lively conversation with the 2022 Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) Co-Directors of Programming: Thouly Dosios and Ritesh Mehta both of whom have been members of this wonderful organization for some time now. Listen as they share what they are most excited about for the upcoming festival and some of their must- see recommendations in addition to a discussion about what a thrilling time this is for Indian cinema as a whole.
The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) brings the most innovative independent films coming out of India and the Indian diaspora to an LA and Southern California audience.
In addition to film screenings, the festival offers stimulating discussions between filmmakers and audiences, as well as panel conversations and industry sessions.
IFFLA was founded in 2002 as a non-profit organization with the aim to offer the Los Angeles community a unique opportunity to learn about India’s multifaceted culture and long history of filmmaking. Since then, IFFLA has grown into the premiere US venue for discovering the best of Indian cinema, as well as a vital hub which fosters an important dialogue among the most original independent storytellers from India and its diaspora, the greater South Asian diasporic community and the international film industry at large.
Marking its 20th anniversary, IFFLA 2022 will take place from April 28 to May 1 at the state-of-the-art Regal L.A. LIVE in the heart of Los Angeles’ vibrant and developing downtown district.
