The 13th Annual New York Indian Film Festival, described as “the oldest and most prestigious film festival for Indian cinema in North America”, will be held Tuesday, April 30 to Saturday, May 4, 2013 in New York City.  

The New York Indian Film Festival will kick off its week-long festivities with a star-studded Opening Night red carpet premiere, at the the Skirball Center for Performing Arts. Festival screenings will take place throughout the week at Tribeca Cinemas, with the Closing Night selection to be followed by the annual awards ceremony and after-party at the Skirball Center for Performing Arts.

The New York Indian Film Festival (originally the IAAC Film Festival) started in 2001 following the devastation of the September 11 attacks on New York City.
