Now in its 13th year, the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) has unveiled its 2015 lineup, running April 8-12 at ArcLight Hollywood.
This year’s festival will feature 25 films, including four world premieres, seven North American premieres and two US premieres.
Highlights include the world premiere of Amit Gupta’s One Crazy Thing, the US premiere of Danis Tanović’s Tigers [pictured], Umesh Aggarwal’s A.R. Rahman documentary Jai Ho, Kanu Behl’s Titli and Ravi Kapoor’s Miss India America.
As announced last week, Shlok Sharma’s debut feature Haraamkhor will receive its world premiere as the opening film, while the US premiere of Nagesh Kukunoor’s Dhanak (Rainbow) will close the festival.
“Many of the films at this year’s IFFLA look at contemporary youth from diverse backgrounds, united in their creative ways of overcoming life’s situations. The palpable energy of youth spirit runs throughout our film lineup, and these stories take you on an adventurous journey,” said Jasmine Jaisinghani, IFFLA’s artistic director.
This year will also see a secret screening for passholders only of a film that has won numerous awards on the festival circuit that is slated to be released later this year.
Guests set to attend IFFLA include Nagesh Kukunoor, Kanu Behl, Amit Gupta, Hannah Simone, Meera Simhan and Guneet Monga.
