India International Film Festival (IIFF)
The Indo-US Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the India International Film Festival (IIFF) of Tampa Bay. The chamber's mission has always been to provide active forums for interaction, education and community involvement. We have been successful in the past in these endeavors through various events like the MOSI partnership for Demystifying India, Expo and training with the International Business Summit and black tie events like the Banyan Ball.
Over 35,000 people of Indian origin call Tampa bay their home. It is one of the fastest growing demographic and contributes approximately 3 billion dollars in revenue through diverse business fields such as Healthcare, IT, Retail, Hospitality, Real Estate and Manufacturing.
One field that plays a vital role in connecting this community and engaging others is films. India is one of the world's largest makers of films producing over a thousand films annually in several languages. These films are widely viewed and enjoyed in over 80 different markets worldwide.
With the IIFF we hope to bring the community and business together through this medium of films, while providing a platform for independent film-makers to showcase their efforts.
The India International Film Festival (IIFF) of Tampa Bay will take place between 22nd January 2010 and 24th January 2010 at Channelside Cinemas in Tampa. This three day festival will open with a main feature presentation and opening night gala, followed by a variety of feature films, short films, and documentaries from different genres.
We invite you to submit your work for consideration and join us in the festival.
