National Award-winning actor Tabu will be honoured at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles in April.

Announcing the lineup of films and the other activities of the festival, Christina Marouda, IFFLA Executive Director, said in a statement: "We have been discussing honouring Tabu for a long time, and this year felt like the right time. Her work and personality embody everything that IFFLA is about – being fearless, versatile, independent in spirit, unwilling to compromise, brilliant in the range of her performances, and simply beautiful. With half of the festival's 2019 lineup directed by female filmmakers, this couldn't be a stronger celebration of women in Indian cinema."

Tabu's recently released film Andhadhun will be the opening film of the festival, and several features, shorts and documentaries in nine languages will be showcased.

Taking the Horse to Eat Jalebis by Anamika Haksar, Jonaki by Aditya Vikram Sengupta featuring veteran Bengali actress Lolita Chatterjee, Namdev Bhau in Search of Silence by Dar Gai, The Sweet Requiem by Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam are among the titles that will be shown. The short film Maya featuring Kirti Kulhari and Naveen Kasturia will also be screened at the festival.

The 17th edition of the festival will be held from 11 April to 14 April at Regal L.A. LIVE: A Barco Innovation Center in Los Angeles.
