Miniboxoffice International Film Festival is now Noida International Film Festival. After having three successful editions of Miniboxoffice International Film Festival which caters mainly for short films only is now turned bigger with the addition of feature films section to it. In year 2014 the management of Miniboxoffice has renamed it on the name of India’s fastest developing city ‘NOIDA’. It’s a tribute to the city where Miniboxoffice starts in year 2010 and the city itself is the house of North India’s largest Film City.

11th Noida International Film Festival-24 objective is to feature great cinema of worldwide filmmakers in a big way & at the same time providing professional networking & introducing current trends of cinema to the participants. The festival goal is to empower independent filmmakers and committed to become premium movie going event which foster the growth of independent filmmakers.

The 2014 to 23 edition of NIFF was huge success with participation of filmmakers from more than 90 countries. The NIFF-24 is expected to achieve many milestones towards the development of Independent Cinema. With this I welcome all filmmakers to come and join the movement which brings highest level of thoughts & culture of different nations in the form of enriching & entertaining cinema.

    It was an honor for us to have been included in the festival with our short film "10:35". The opportunity to share our story and message through film is invaluable and we are grateful for this platform to spread it. We thank the organizers and everyone involved in the festival for their dedication and effort to make it happen. Thank you so much! Spaceboy.

    The Safely Feel The Real World short film directed by me for the Durex 001 collaborated with Volvo XC40, which won the Best Animation at 10th Noida International Film Festivals. This film award affirms me and encourages me to move forward. Great festival!

    The organizers made an attempt to communicate regularly and engage the filmmakers. However, the communication was misleading. We were given a big list of films to be screened simultaneously at 4 screens, which gave a totally different picture of the scale of the festival and seemed like an opportunity to meet and network with other filmmakers. In reality, the screening was in one small conference room with basic quality of sound and video. Only 4 filmmakers attended full time. The organizers were missing till the award ceremony and the arrangements were left to 3 young amateurs who had little idea about what was going on. The quality of films screened was also not that great. Personally, I felt it was a waste of time to attend the festival.
