From dramas to documentaries, comedies to musicals, the 2017 Indian Film Festival of Melbourne is set to showcase the finest selection of colourful and vibrant films.

Melbourne is home to a flourishing Indian community and our city has a great appreciation for India’s film history, including Bollywood productions filmed in Australia. There are more than 60 films in 20 languages plus a host of free events for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t miss the Bollywood dancing competition, masterclasses and colourful dancing and musical performances.

The City of Melbourne is a proud supporter of this event. Festivals such as this enrich the cultural life of our city as a whole.

Congratulations to the Indian Film Festival team on what promises to be another wonderful festival.
