“At DIFF, I had the best screening of Masaan after Cannes. The warmth of the ever helpful and smart volunteers, the enthusiasm of the crowd braving the cold to wait in line for the film, the superb Q&A’s, the carefully drawn out schedules, the superb aesthetic, and the ever so fulfilling interactions, rival the best festivals in the world. I was reminded of my time at Sundance because DIFF too is a mountain festival. Thank you for treating us with so much love and kindness. Team DIFF, take a bow!”
Neeraj Ghaywan, Director,Masaan

“Been to many festivals- but the spirit behind the organisation of DIFF is absolutely unique. I have never been to a festival that runs its engine on the passion of everyone that comes in contact with it.”
Rajat Kapoor, Director Ankhon Dekhi
“I think DIFF is amazing; your passions and commitment to create a film festival so completely engaged with life and society is so rare.”
Guy Davidi, Director Five Broken Cameras
