The Premier

Message from The Honorable Premier of Victoria

It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 2023 Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.

Now running for its 14th edition, IFFM is the biggest celebration of Indian cinema outside of India.

Events like IFFM give Victorians from all walks of life the opportunity to come together, share their stories and celebrate different cultures – and there’s nothing more Victorian than that.

This year’s festival is breaking new ground online with the launch of IFFM365 – so every Victorian can stream the program at home, all year round. From opening night to special screenings and dance competitions, IFFM showcases the very best of Indian storytelling.

Thank you to the organisers, workers, volunteers and creatives who make IFFM such a success – and enjoy the festival.

The Hon Daniel Andrews MP
Premier of Victoria
