Press Release by Priyanka

BOSTON, MA (September 13, 2022)

Indian International Film Festival of Boston (IIFFB) returns to celebrate its fifth year, which showcases independent films from around the world. This gala event will take place in the Boston area for three days, held on Sept 23,24, and 25, including an opening night, film screenings, and an awards ceremony with a Red Carpet. We have a reason to expect a sold-out show as Asha Parekh, the veteran Bollywood actress, will be present and honored for the IIFFB Lifetime Achievement award. Bollywood and film industry members from other countries also attend IIFFB 2022 to make the event memorable.

We are eagerly waiting to join us this year with our Award Recipients:

  1. Asha Parekh     Lifetime Achievement Award
  2. Naeemm Khan   Pride of India (2022)
  3. Taniya Nayak   Community Pride
  4. American Indian Foundation   Friends of India
  5. Mary Truong   Friends of America
  6. Indian Circle for Caring   Award of Excellence
  7. Vikas Khanna Pride of India (2021)

This year, focusing on “Women, Let’s Spread our wings and fly together,” IIFFB is celebrating and acknowledging the contribution of all the phenomenal women from our committee. We appreciate their long-standing commitment to IIFFB, making it a most successful and celebrated event in Boston since 2018.

We also support girls and women in all their diversity across the world who stand firm and support each other during several daily significant challenges. Throughout the year, IIFFB is deeply committed and continues leading discussions with high-level panels to promote women’s empowerment for their sustainable development.

The India International Film Festival of Boston IIFFB brings together visionaries across industries and diverse audiences to celebrate the power of storytelling. A platform for independent filmmaking, creative expression, and immersive entertainment, IIFFB supports emerging and established voices, discovers awards winning filmmakers, curates innovative and interactive experiences, and introduces new technology and ideas through panels, premieres, exhibitions, and live performances.

Out of all the received films, our esteemed jury members finalized 20+ films to showcase. That’s certainly overwhelming for us. Screening that many films in 3 days is a challenge. We took that challenge because our programming committee has said that “We had a difficult time selecting from the many high-quality films that were submitted This year. We’re also including “Audience Choice Award” which is why we are screening a couple films online from September 20th to September 24th, and the final announcement will be on the 25th.
