Breaking all stereotypes, CICIFF's mission is to present quality films from around the world as well as support, recognize and honor film makers. CICIFF festival intends to connect the film fans and movies goers with the world, especially the serious filmmaker and their associates so as to bring about greater understanding of the art of film making.

With film festivals now becoming a paid ticket affair and caters only to a selected range of audiences, the two day CICIFF will be a “Free for All” film festival to enjoy films from various countries including Germany, Italy, UK, USA, Russia, Bangladesh, Iran, Poland in English and the country's own languages. Indian regional language films like Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Bhojpuri, and in south Indian language including Malayalam, Tamil, Telegu and Kanada will be showcased. A vital showcase for indie film makers, the films will be organized thematically, in hopes of representing the full range of the human experience as reflected by our chosen filmmakers.
