In just two years, the India International Film Festival (IIFF) of Tampa Bay has attracted filmmakers from around the nation and media coverage across the globe! The 3-day festival drew in 2500 people in 2011!
The goal of IIFF is to create a forum for local, national and international filmmakers to conceive, share and showcase ideas as related to India. The Indian film industry produces the largest number of films in the world. While, IIFF pays homage to Bollywood, it focuses on independent films in a wide variety of genres as related to the Indian culture and society.
