IFFM Awards Night

Sunday, 14th August
5:30 PM for 6PM start
Palais Theatre

Imagine this:

You are walking the red carpet into a stunning theatre wearing your favourite gown or your perfectly ironed tux. There are flashing cameras everywhere, and you’re waving to a crowd of happy faces, lost in the world of glamour. The host suddenly approaches you and asks, “who are you wearing?”

Are you ready to make this fantasy come true and feel like a real star? Because oh boy, have we got something planned for you.

This year, our own Palais Theatre will light up with Indian film stars to confer some of our biggest, brightest, boldest, brilliant-est films. We will be welcoming the mega stars Abhishek Bachchan, Tamannaah, Vaani Kapoor, Kabir Khan, Kapil Dev, Shefali Shah, among many others to our vibrant awards night.

We also have lined up special performances including Parvyn and Janaki Easwar to make it a night of elegance and entertainment, and our presenters include Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton.

Join our extravagant and truly magical Awards Night and witness the celebration of Indian cinema in its full glory.

Trust us when we say, this is the night we've all been waiting for.
