Mission / description On the Occasion of 100 years of Delhi & Indian Cinema, The Social Circle successfully organized three Delhi International film Festivals with Delhi Tourism in 2012, 2013, 2014 and then successfully continued with the 4th edition of Delhi International film festival in December 2015, In Association with NDMC, NCT DELHI AND DELHI TOURISM.

To celebrate the 100 glorious years of Indian Cinema and Delhi in 2012, the idea of 1st DIFF was conceptualized by The Social Circle. Delhi became an indelible part of cinematic history when it got its only International film festival in the form of DIFF. DIFF became the catalyst for getting people closer to Indian and world cinema in the year of the centenary celebrations of Delhi and Indian Cinema.

After the grand successes of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Delhi International film festivals in 2012, 2013 and 2014, 4th DIFF was organized in 2015 and it received more accolades & applause, thus becoming a huge success. As it is our endeavor to promote Cinema, Art & Culture, we are continuing our legacy with DIFF 2016.

London, Tokyo, Durban, Beijing, Dubai, Mumbai, Goa, Kolkata and now, Delhi! DIFF grandly showcases world cinema by screening 250 films, 250 selected art works and 50 literary works by NRI and Indian poets. This is possibly the only film festival in the world that not only toasts films, but also its artistic branches.
