Because Who Really Knows? 
Devanshi Vaid and Nadia Nooreyezdan, our two new interns, have both joined us here from Mumbai. Here’s an attempt at listing the series of events that somehow steered them here. Read more


In the Beginning
– Meet the DIFF 2015 Team, and get a taste of the programme we have reserved for this year! In collaboration with the Asian Cultural Council, we are bringing three very special films and their filmmakers to DIFF. Read more


“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. Over 60 volunteers made a festival in Dharamshala possible- a town without a single cinema screen. They have already done three years- and they are good for the next thirty I believe. Bravo!”
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. For “Five Broken Cameras” I think it has been the most suitable place to screen and for me it is definitely the festival of the year!” 
Guy Davidi, Director Five Broken Cameras

“It has been the most awesome experience ever for me. Absolutely love it!! Can’t wait to be back.”
Guneet Monga, Producer, The Lunchbox

“We are missing the mountains and the warmth of DIFF. I really hope we can return soon with       another film.” 
Asif Kapadia, Director, Senna
