6th NEZ International Film Festival (NIFF)

25th to 27th September, 2020

NEZ stands for simplicity of life and existence. NEZ is not a corporate, nor an NGO; in fact no standard term can describe NEZ. It simply is a platform for beings in this planet to come forward, and come together and explore their collective talents for the progress of the world and beyond. We have long enough thought about espousing our cause and ours alone. Now we think together. It is a platform to promote excellence in Education, Arts, Literature, Films, Medicine, Science, Research, Community Service etc. The philosophy at NEZ is very simple. We share collective fate. We seek new thought patterns that shall shape this world and the universe in times to come.
NEZ International Film Festival (NIFF) stands for best of world cinemas in the categories of Feature Films, Short Films, Documentaries Films and Ad Films. A platform of NIFF is meant for bringing undiscovered pure talents before a larger audience of the world.

NIFF is an umbrella; it is a conglomeration of niche festivals under one category. We treat the entire event as a visual carnival. The purpose of the festival is to celebrate everything the visual medium of cinema has to offer. We are now stepping into 3rd year of our Journey and proudly announce two more categories from this year.

That which is Paramount is also fragile. What better example we can have of this fact other than the Planets Eco System or the Environment. Sadly the most Paramount things behind the survival of humans are also most abused by the same humans. We stand at a dangerous point.
