We have such a brilliant selection of films screening throughout the Westpac Indian Film Festival. The program is teeming with rich cinematography and vibrant performances throughout the three-day-festival. We are grateful for the opportunity to bring to Australian audiences some of the best from India and the subcontinent, giving a platform to important and truly beautiful stories. Endeavouring to improve each year, WIFFS 2017 screens at two of Sydney’s major HOYTS theatres; Blacktown and Entertainment Quarter.

With Indian cinema recognised more and more on the international stage, we shine a light on our handpicked favourites - featuring boundary-pushing films, independent and blockbuster alike. We selected these films to celebrate, to inspire, and to confront audiences. The WIFFS team is excited to welcome Sydney audiences to this year’s festival, with special screenings and an exceptional line up.
