Message From The Premier

Welcome to the 12th edition of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.

This incredible event – which draws visitors from across the world, both in person and online – is an important celebration of India’s cinema and culture.

This year’s festivities will also celebrate India’s 75th Independence Day.

It’s a chance to reflect on the enormous contribution India has made to the world and an opportunity to reaffirm the qualities that make India a great and vibrant democracy.

Home to different identities, languages and a wide range of opinions, India is a shining example that there is strength in diversity - this festival will no doubt showcase these perspectives and personalities.

I’d like to extend my sincere congratulations to the organisers, volunteers and artists who have put together this year’s program of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne on their 12th edition of the festival.

Enjoy the festival.

The Hon Daniel Andrews MP
