Indian Film Academy Award: Academy Awards and People's Choice Awards mix

The voting process, a sort of Academy Awards and People's Choice Awards mélange, is conducted in two stages. On a particular weekend, members of India's film industry gather to vote in both the "popular" categories and the technical categories. The winners in the technical categories are decided during that first voting phase (this year's winners will be announced on May 16), while the names of the five nominees in each popular category are then posted on various websites around the globe so the filmgoing public can pick the winners.

This year's ceremony will take place on June 11 at Amsterdam's Arena Stadium, as part of a series of Indian film and business events scheduled for that week in The Netherlands.
