Last year, it was Netherlands. The year before, it was Singapore. And South Africa before that. The 7th International Indian Film Academy [I.I.F.A.] Awards will be held in Dubai this year.
Announcing this at a high-powered conference held at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai on Wednesday, April 19, Amitabh Bachchan [Brand Ambassador of I.I.F.A.] and Sabbas Joseph of Wizcraft revealed that the I.I.F.A. Weekend 2006 and the Idea I.I.F.A.

As always, the I.I.F.A. Weekend promises to be packed with action, with a film festival, the world premiere of a blockbuster Indian film and the F.I.C.C.I.-I.I.F.A. Global Business Forum.
