IFFM Dance Competition

We regret to advise that the IFFM dance competition to be held on August 15 stands cancelled due to the current lockdown.

A year filled with uncertainty and everything virtual deserves a celebration, and what better way than putting on your dancing shoes and performing in front of a live congregation.

Bringing back the excitement with a *drumroll* effect - Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2021 announces the #IFFMDanceCompetition! It only gets BIGGER and BETTER than ever!
