NEW DELHI: The 5th annual Indian Film Festival at Houston in the United States, to be held from 4 to 6 October, has invited entries by the end of this month for features and documentaries.

The festival showcases Indian related films that can compete in the world stage and beyond Bollywood zany entertainers.

The Indian Film Festival of Houston (IFFH) is an official event on the International Film Festival circuit and some of the previous winners have been recognised on the international film circuit – one is an Oscar winner and another is an Oscar-nominated film.

IFFH offers Jury awards for Best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Short and Special Recognition Awards for Industry Leaders. IFFH will also be giving scholarships to students who are interested to attend Film and Television School in Houston. 

The festival will span three nights and will present more than 12 screenings daily. This makes it one of the most unique and original Indian film festivals in the south of the US. The festival will feature film screenings, special symposia and educational events presented throughout the Houston area.



The full Indian Film Festival of Houston line-up will be announced at 31 August.

Film producer and Festival founder Sutapa Ghosh said: “Not all Indian films are done in the Bollywood style. We love Bollywood, but we are beyond Bollywood. The new generation has evolved into something new now. There was stagnation for a long time, where we were doing the same thing over and over. Now, the younger generation is doing something different. We have documentaries, short films, off beat independent films. We want to showcase the best of Indian related cinema at the world stage"

The permanent house for the IFFH Festival is Asia Society, which is very prestigious all over the world.

The Indian Film Festival of Houston (IFFH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organisation devoted to education in the fields of film and television and in creating a greater appreciation of Indian cinema and culture by showcasing quality films that honor entertainment industry performers and film makers while promoting the diverse perspectives of the Indian Diaspora through an annual event.

She earned her Master’s Degree (MS) from Rhode Island, USA and also has a Bachelor’s degree in Music (Sitar).
