IFFM invites you to find the hero in you! This year the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne team was inspired to create a campaign to give back to our loyal audience. We want to give people an extra reason to do some good, so why not offer some film rewards?

Our festival celebrates the heart of cinema from india and the subcontinent; films about rich storytelling and complex narratives. Films are about heroes and villains, but real heroics are simple choices that enrich lives. You can take a photo or a video of you doing good, and tweet or share with the hashtag #IFFMHero.

Our favourite entries will win tickets to festival events fantastic merchandise from films! ! We have heaps of amazing films in the 2017 IFFM program, as well Masterclasses and Q&A’s with industry stars. We also have signed merchandise, opportunities to meet the celebrities and much more! We will be awarding these prizes to awesome entries in the lead up and during the festival.

If you’re keen to do some good, do it!! Share it with us and subscribe to our social media networks (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) to be in the running.

There are plenty of amazing ways you can do good, like cooking a meal for your grandparents or sign up to coach a local kids sports team. Maybe you have a pile of donate-able clothes you don’t wear enough, or maybe you have always wanted to learn the saxophone. Why not now?
