About Film Festival

Nepal America Film Society announces first ever Nepal America International Film Festival (NAIFF) to be held from May 5th through May 7th 2017 in the greater Washington DC Metropolitan area. Our goal is to organize the festival annually by collaborating with various Nepali diaspora community organizations, personalities and other cinematic organizations from the United States and Nepal.  The Festival showcases all genres of films including feature length films, documentaries, animation, experimental and shorts.

The film festival mainly focuses on bridging Nepali and American culture through cinema. We focus on films from Nepal, by the Nepali and non-Nepali filmmakers, under the Nepal Panorama section.  However, films from around the world shall also be presented in the festival. We also encourage films from the Nepali Diaspora filmmakers in the United States.

During the festival film, screening will be followed by Q&A session with special guest or filmmaker based on availability. Panel discussions and workshops will also be organized. Films participated in the festival will be recognized by the token of love and selected by juries will be awarded.
