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.

10th Noida International Film Festival-22 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 NIFF-23 is expected to achieve many milestones towards the development of Independent Cinema.

    Thank you NOIDA for an exceptional festival experience. The dedication & thought this festival team puts in to showcasing independent work and facilitating a sense of connection in the film community is truly extraordinary.

    The extra element of the kindhearted warm, humanitarian ethos made participation in this festival an unforgettable and meaningful experience. In these strange NOIDA is a shining ray of hope!

    Our Australian Team are honoured to have been included in the 2022 program and to have been awarded the judges award for Best International music video for our project Leisure Machine.

    I most highly recommend this festival to other indy film makers.

    Wishing you the best Clare St Clare & The Leisure Machine Team

    Noida is one of the more personal festivals because of their urgency to make personal videos mentioning works and their venue . They are clear in their communication and are located in a wonderful part of India near a renown bird sanctuary.
