Creating a legacy

For the past 17 years, since the IIFA Weekend and Awards came into being, so much has changed, so many people influenced, countries explored & many new audiences added. Not only has Indian Cinema expanded its wings and explored new horizons, but it has also made stronger bonds with new nations and made an intense connect with Hollywood. After captivating audiences in 14 locations across 5 continents, the grandest celebration of Indian Cinema celebrated in Madrid this year

The 17th annual edition of IIFA Weekend & Awards was hosted in Madrid, Spain on June 23-25, 2016. The IIFA Weekend & Awards are eagerly awaited and anticipated by fans around the world as they present the opportunity of a lifetime for guests to witness an action-packed weekend showcasing the best of Bollywood. The 3-day IIFA Weekend celebrates Indian Cinema in its grandest form, with elements of culture, business, film, fashion, entertainment and music from India.

IIFA through the years

IIFA Weekend

One big party

Mammoth productions and multi-crore deals. Big-ticket releases and trade analysis. Publicity, tie-ups, buzz. The world's biggest movie industry is hard at work round-the-clock, all through the year. The stakes are big, the pressure intense and the need to stay on top of things, overwhelming. But there's one time during the year when hotshot filmmakers and their cavalcade of stars allow themselves a breather. The box-office and critics, overseas collections and high-powered negotiations take a backseat. It's time to exhale and breathe in a fresh burst of energy and excitement. It's time for the film folk to revel in their work and colleagues. IIFA helps the industry connect with one another in a faraway location, leaving the rigors of their profession aside. The IIFA Weekend, from the point of view of the stars, is the grandest of all parties. A grand, exciting, foot-tapping, back-slapping, ice-breaking party. It's where they get to meet their friends and rivals, old colleagues and new acquaintances, in an atmosphere of genuine bonhomie. IIFA Weekend activities range from stars discovering cities on bikes and petting lion cubs, getting pampered at spas and entranced by history, and the fun culminates with the rocking after-parties.
