NEW YORK: At an event to kick-off the 12th annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF), Indian actor and activist Shabana Azmi was honored with a proclamation from the New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture and Television Development.

The proclamation commending her commitment to the arts and contributions to New York City’s film industry was presented to Azmi by Pat Kaufman, Executive Director of the Office for Motion Picture and Television Development.

“Shabana Azmi’s talent has garnered international acclaim, helping to shape the Indian film industry and build awareness of Indian cinema in North America,” said Kaufman. “We applaud the NYIFF for honoring Azmi’s achievements, both on and off screen, and are pleased to celebrate her success, especially as we prepare to host the Indo-American Arts Council’s 12th Annual New York Indian Film Festival in lower Manhattan this spring.”

Hosted by the Indo-American Arts Council, the event kicked off the 12th annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF), which will be held from May 23 to 27 at Tribeca Cinemas in Manhattan. Azmi, who is an advisory board member of the festival, said, “We have proven ourselves as a legitimate and successful festival year after year, and the fact that we are still struggling to find sustained funding is surprising.”

“Shabana has been a friend and Advisory Board member of the IAAC since its inception, using her talent, activism, and energy to help NYIFF stay the course of true, Independent and Diaspora cinema,” said Indo-American Arts Council Founder and Executive Director Aroon Shivdasani. “We are thrilled to toast her Padma Bhushan from India and applaud her Proclamation from the State of New York!”
