6th- 7th - 8th March 2022

CHINH in Sanskrit means SYMBOL.

CIFF is all about celebration of film craft as a tool for reflection, change and activism showcasing cinematic expressions from across the globe. We enable filmmakers from around the world to present their work at CHINH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. CIFF does not put any restrictions on genres and topics of entries.

Born in 2007 in the backdrop of 60th year of India’s Independence, CHINH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is all about respecting the culture and diversity. The festival is at a cross over stage from non-competition to competition in this 15th edition.

The USP of the film festival is JURY of eminent EDUCATORS from all streams.
The evaluation of the every film is quiet methodical and in-depth.

The festival needs YOUR FILM and YOU too. Once your film is nominated, we will initiate collaboration with your Embassy in New Delhi, India to take care of your accommodation during the film festival dates in New Delhi.

Don’t MISS this opportunity to be part of this collaborative learning platform and experience the spiritual elements of India.

See you in India in March 2022 !!
