It will explore the potential of AI technology to enhance creative storytelling and advance the filmmaking landscape.

The festival, spanning almost six months, will be held in hybrid format with a dedicated website for virtual visitors to explore the event remotely. 

AIFF will feature a global competition, movie screenings, panel discussions with renowned AI experts and filmmakers, and hands-on workshops offering insights into AI integration in film production.

Submissions for the competition are open until December 1, where professional and amateur creators can submit a short film that includes AI-generated content.

The winning entries will be showcased at an awards ceremony on February 29, 2024.
