Time Out says

The New York Indian Film Festival, North America’s oldest and most prestigious festival that celebrates alternative, independent cinema from the global Indian community, is back this week. The lineup includes more than 20 features, documentaries and shorts.

A few notable films include Gulmohar (a multi-generational family drama that follows the family's journey leaving their 34-year-old house) and One Small Visit (a true story of an immigrant family passing through the midwest home of Neil Armstrong in the wake of the 1969 moon landing. Plus, there are two shorts featuring Danny Pudi and Anupam. 

Both the opening and closing films deal with women's health, specifically dementia. The opening film stars Shefali Shah, known for her powerful performance in Netflix's Delhi Crime.

Events run from May 11-14 at a variety of locations around NYC.
