The Indian Film Festival of Houston returns for its fifth year in 2013. The inaugural festival's success led to an even greater desire to spread the awareness of the Indian culture by expanding the horizons of an international audience through the film medium. The festival showcases Indian related films that can compete in the world stage and beyond Bollywood zany entertainers.

The Indian Film Festival of Houston (IFFH) is an official event on the International Film Festival circuit and some of the previous winners have been recognized on the international film circuit - one is an Oscar winner and another is an Oscar-nominated film.

IFFH offers Jury awards for Best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Short and Special Recognition Awards for Industry Leaders. The 5th Annual IFFH will be held between Oct 4-6, 2013 while the submission deadline is June 30, 2013.

The festival will span 3 nights and will present more than 12 screenings. The festival will feature film screenings, special symposia and educational events presented throughout the Houston area. The full Indian Film Festival of Houston line-up will be announced at August 31, 2013.

Film producer and Festival founder Sutapa Ghosh wants to be clear - not all Indian films are done in the Bollywood style. "We love Bollywood, but we're beyond Bollywood. The new generation has evolved into something new now. There was stagnation for a long time, where we were doing the same thing over and over. Now, the younger generation is doing something different. We have documentaries, short films, off-beat independent films. We want to showcase the best of Indian related cinema at the world stage."
