Our festival will hold its 6th edition in April, 2018, from April 11 to 15.
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 projection to present the movie and each time it’s possible, we offer a post-screening discussion with the spectators after the projection. This is very appreciated, especially in the case of this cinematography which is little known, and even suffering from prejudices.
Working on a French subtitled copy 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 decerns an Audience Award and a Jury Prize.
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.
