NYIFF, which ran virtually from 24 July to 2 August, screened feature and non-feature projects in various Indian languages including Assamese, Bengali, Haryanvi, Hindi, English, Ladakhi, Maithili, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali and Tamil. The festival, usually held around April-May every year in Manhattan, was postponed this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
