For the first time in Europe, a film festival is to be organized for the purpose of celebrating the heritage and genre of South Indian Films. SSIFF- Swiss South Indian Film Festival brings out together the work of South India’s finest film makers & artists to showcase their talent at an international level.
SSIFF will be a perfect gateway for the European community to get familiar with the South Indian cultural and social trivia through its films, says its founder Mr. Kanagalingam.
This festival is one of the biggest festive of its kind for South Indian Films outside India.
