Inspite of the fact that the state of Haryana has given many successful film directors,actors,musicians and writers to Indian cinema,Haryanavi cinema could never find space on the national landscape.Haryanavi cinema is lagging far behind other Northern regional cinema like Punjabi,Bhojpuri,Rajasthani.To develop cultural and informational    potential of cinema in the state it becomes imperative to create awareness among the Haryana youth and i guess that’s what HIFF intends to do.I had the privilege of attending the HIFF,Hissar in 2016.I congratulate the organisers and applaud the efforts they are making to bring international cinema to the people of Haryana.I wish them all the best.

If you are a film buff, the Haryana International Film Festival is the right space for you. It is a platform where Haryanvi Culture is incorporated with World Cinema in an effective way. Given the lavish scale of the festival, it does not only attract a large audience from various parts of the world but also encourages young and independent filmmakers of our own to be part of this festival. HIFFprovides varied opportunities toanyone who wants to showcase their talent and creativity. The different categories of films featured throughout the festival form a wide learning curve for all the delegates present. I wish that HIFF grows from strength to strength, year after year providing everyone wholesome entertainment as well as a kaleidoscope to explore cinema from across the globe.”
