IFFLA’s annual festival, now in its 23rd year, offers a vibrant program comprising features and shorts, including narrative, documentary, and animated works. The festival showcases films from eight countries in the South Asian subcontinent – Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – as well as their diasporas in the US and worldwide.

Additional year-round programming ranges from noteworthy screenings with stimulating discussions between filmmakers and audiences; to special programs, such as retrospectives, spotlights, and masterclasses; community partnerships with LA-based organizations amplifying South Asian voices; and lively social events. All these activities are aimed at fostering a greater appreciation of South Asian cinemas, industries, and culture, from both the subcontinent and the diaspora.
