Toronto to host IIFA awards in 2011

MUMBAI: Keeping everyone guessing about the location of the 2010 edition, the organizers of IIFA have gone ahead and announced the venue of the 2011 edition of International Indian Film Academy Awards.


Canada will play host to the 2011 IIFA. The IIFA weekend and IDEA IIFA Awards ceremony will be held in the Greater Toronto Area from 16 to 19 June.

Averred IIFA Director Viraf Sarkari, "We are pleased to announce IIFA‘s North American premiere in Toronto, Ontario in 2011. The city has much to offer and the Weekend and Awards promise to be bigger than ever as IIFA steps into Canada.
