We are an Independent film festival with live screenings, that happens yearly in Ahmadabad. Welcome to Amdabad Film Festival. We are facilitating our second Annual Festival in 2020. Our mission is intended to help make a stage for our producers to be seen, yet more significantly, get them the business presentation to help support their specialty for a long time to come. The AMFF is amazingly energized for its grandstand season and plans on getting extraordinary compared to other film festivals in the Amdabad. Each movie producer who submits is naturally qualified for our Production Budget prizes.

AMFF endeavors to give spaces to autonomous movie producers to make and show their accounts without business pressure, so as to find and celebrate unprecedented movies and create free filmmaking. Our Jury group is searching for potential movies and producers for scheduled meetings with officials from the film and media business. AMFF will have screening occasions at the Ahmadabad with post-screening Q&A with executives, makers and entertainers and the open door for them to coordinate with industry experts at our networking occasions and workshops.

  • I am sorry but i have to say this. The festival website is blocked, so no news and updates. I even don't get replies to facebook messages. I never received proper communications or updates on festival's happenings. There was no communication regarding the final festival selections or winners or whatsoever, seems quite disorganized festival. I have sent quite a few communications but no reply.

    We are honored and deeply grateful that our film “The McHenry Trial – Don’t Judge a Kid by Their Hoodie,” was selected as a Quarter Finalist in your festival. The festival is well-organized with great communication. May the festival continue to provide filmmakers a platform that fosters creativity and self expression.

  • It is another feather added to the cap. My mobile short film "Undercover" has been selected as quarter finalist .

    Although it should have been a proud moment as a filmmaker but I feel upset to put it across that my experience with Amdabad Film Festival has been extremely disappointing since the beginning.

    There was a discrepancy in the status for which I had to send six emails before finally getting a response. The mails reverted back were extremely disrespectful while the organizers expecting me to me polite. P.s. Not disrespect for the team agent who contacted me over phone though.

    This is my sixth selection for this project however even after being nominated as quarter finalist I feel sad to leave such kind of review but it is a fact.

    Would never participate in this festival again in future.
