A warm welcome to the Delta International Film Festival. DIFF offers more than just a handful of award possibilities. We pride ourselves in providing a wide variety of award opportunities on multiple categories. Not only will filmmakers have a higher chance of landing an award. Films that are selected to screen with us will have the opportunity to opt out of their screening while still maintaining their award/s if there is a conflict with another festival or event. At that point, the next runner up will move in to the screening spot. “Best” films of each category will be guaranteed a screening spot, and will have the opportunity to win our Audience Choice Award. Official selections and honorable mentions will also have the opportunity to win the Audience Choice Award. All winners and finalist will receive official DIFF award certificates.

Here is what we offer you -

- Screening of your film before a live audience in India.

- Finding an audience that resonates with the idea of ​​film as an art and a platform from which you can get honest and constructive feedback

-The finalists and the winner will get certificates as well as laurels highlighting their achievement

-All selected films will be awarded with our official laurel
