Rubaiyat's latest film, Made in Bangladesh, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and ran successfully in theatres in Europe and USA. Her previous works include Under Construction (2015) and Meherjaan (2011).

IFFI in 2020 was postponed to January this year due to the pandemic and is being held in a hybrid format. Founded in 1952, the festival also hosts India's biggest film market, Goa Film Bazaar.

The opening film this year is Thomas Vinterberg's Another Round starring Mads Mikkelsen.
