Indian Film Festival of Melbourne
10 August 2017 - 22 August 2017
The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne is a Victorian Government initiative that aims to strengthen ties between the Indian film industry and Victoria.
This year’s festival will run from Thursday 10 – Tuesday 22 August, with more venues, special guests and events, and screenings of over 60 films.
Opening this year’s festival is the award winning and thought-provoking Lipstick Under My Burkha. An acclaimed drama exploring social taboos and personal struggles of four Indian women from diverse backgrounds, the film was initially denied classification in January for being too “lady orientated” by the Central Board Film Certification (CBFC) of India, a decision director Alankrita Shrivastava described as “an assault on women’s rights.”
