IGNITE Film Festival is a Lighthouse initiative to promote and encourage young filmmakers, storytellers and creative individuals. The festival also aims at creating awareness by highlighting various social, political and humanist issues through the showcased films.

IFF is a theme based film festival which will be held every year with a particular theme. Although participating films need to incorporate the theme, it also invites participants to submit their own independent films for judging their true creative potential irrespective of imposed theme and restriction. The judgment and finalist selection will be made on the basis of both the submitted films.
