The Kashmir Files, which released across cinema halls on 11 March, was part of the Indian Panorama section at IFFI and was screened on 22 November.

Written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Zee Studios, the film depicts the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from Kashmir following the killings of the community by Pakistan-backed terrorists. It stars Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Joshi. Kher attended a special screening of the film at the 53rd IFFI on 22 November. The nine-day film festival began on 20 November.

The film had sparked a debate among political parties after several BJP-ruled states, including Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat, had exempted the film from entertainment tax.
