Kathmandu: The Nepal America Film Society has announced the dates for the 2022 annual Nepal America International Film Festival (NAIFF). The festival will run from June 23-26.
Due to the pandemic, the 2020 film Festival was canceled. However, the Nepal America Film Society joined hands with 7 other South Asian film festivals in North America to organize the Coalition of South Asian Film Festivals (CoSAFF) in October. The 2021 film festival was conducted virtually from 18 to the 20th of June 2021.
Nepal America International Film Festival showcases all genres of films including feature lengths, documentaries, animations, experimental and shorts from Nepal, South Asia, the USA, and all around the world. As in previous years, films from the Global Peace Film Festival Florida will be screened in the Special Sidebar Section. Films from Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia will be featured in the special DMV Close-up Section.
This year’s edition of the festival will also feature industry panels, critical conversations with filmmakers and other events, which will be announced in the coming months.
NAIFF is an annual film festival organized by Nepal America Film Society Inc, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization based in Maryland. It aims to bring together people from diverse cultures through the art of cinema. Since 2017 the Film Festival has built a unique reputation as an emerging platform for filmmakers with Nepali backgrounds along with American filmmakers and filmmakers from the international diaspora.
