On the New York Indian Film Festival: IAAC has grown into the area's most mainstream Indian film festival, offering features, documentaries, shorts and indies in numerous Indian languages and from various countries.The growth has led not only to a wider range of films, but to new partnerships and inroads to American audiences. wsj.com (Wall Street Journal) “It’s just been very pleasurable to see how it’s grown.I remember when it started…its grown to become a very serious thing and I think now they get the best films, it gets a lot of media attention and I think it’s a fantastic platform, both for Indian filmmakers from the US, and from India.” Salman Rushdie. The IAAC Film Festival has become one of the most important cultural events on the calendar of the Indian-American community.”Consul General Prabhu Dayal. “With film festivals dedicated to Indian cinema popping up all over the place, the grand-daddy of them all, the Indo-American Arts Council, has upped its game with a new moniker, an earlier date and writer Aseem Chhabra as its festival director.” Variety.
