The 9th Annual Indie Meme Film Festival (#IMFF2024) will be held April 17-21, 2024. Each year, Indie Meme brings together different communities through film to promote cross-cultural understanding, create a dialogue and build a globally-conscious community. 

The IMFF 2024 continues the tradition of showcasing established directors while also introducing new voices, with a lineup that is packed once again with brilliant and powerful films. From socio-political dramas to animated adventures and incisive documentaries, Indie Meme promotes socially-relevant, independent cinema from Iran and South Asia with in-person screenings, Q&As, mixers and filmmaker events. The 2023 festival included over 10 films, both features and shorts, in 8 languages from 7 countries.
