Our festival held its 8th edition in April, 2020, from April 22 to 26.
It is the only true film festival dedicated to the films of the Indian subcontinent outside of Paris.
It was born from a will not only to publicize the Indian cinema to the French public but also to promote the city of Toulouse, its metropolitan area and the Occitanie region in India.
One of the major strengths is the work of cultural mediation towards the public.
We systematically dedicate a time before the screening to present the movie and each time it is possible, we hold a discussion with the public after the screening. This is very appreciated, especially in the case of this cinematography which is little known, and even suffering from prejudice.
Working on French subtitled copies is one of our priorities.
In order for everyone to be able to access them we always schedule a few free entry shows at our cost.
Festival des Cinémas Indiens de Toulouse – Toulouse Indian Film Festival awards an Audience Prize, a Jury Prize (Feature & Short) & a Critic Award (with Film Critics Circle of India – FCCI).
In a cinephilic city like Toulouse, which is rich with theatres and numerous festivals, it is important for the such prolific Indian sub-continental cinema to have a place and that we can make it available to the public, in a musical, cultural, educative and living together mediation approach.
