A star-packed celebration, a plethora of talent and unlimited entertainment will be the jam at the #WestpacIFFMAwardsNight 2018. Where deserving artists will have their efforts decorated with recognition for their valuable contribution to the world of Indian Cinema and beyond. This starry night shall see IFFM 2018’s special guests along with the nominees and winners in attendance.
The event comes with some spectacular, head-bobbing music from 'Sachin Jigar' and a solo stand up comedy show by Saadiya Ali, both of which definitely keep you enthralled and in splits through the night. With such a wide-ranging lineup, this event promises to be in service of talent, recognition and celebration of cinema from the Indian subcontinent.
Be a part of all the glitz and glamour on August 12 at the Palais Theatre.
Saadiya Ali is an actor, comedian and very importantly an introvert pretending to be an extrovert. Some of her best skills include sarcasm (which generally gets mistaken for passive aggression), an unhealthy obsession with stray animals and her unique ability to finish an entire tub of ice cream without feeling a pinch of guilt. Saadiya got into theatre at the not-so-tender age of 16 and has since made it her life’s mission to be on stage as much as possible. Her inability to deal with human emotions is what led to comedy and thankfully so because comedy involves talking to yourself a lot which comes naturally to Saadiya considering her severe lack of a social life or friends. Make sure to feed Saadiya if you ever spot her in the wild. She is a grateful creature that will repay you in badly constructed puns. She has been a part of two realityTV based comedy shows: Queens of Comedy (you can find it on Netflix) and Queens vs Kings, both for TLC, Discovery.
