Welcome to London Indian Film Festival

London Indian Film Festival (LIFF), returned to the capital in July 2013 for its fourth edition, bringing the best of Indian independent cinema. It built on previous years successes and expanded to 11 venues, including BFI Southbank, ICA, BAFTA, Nehru Centre, Cineworlds Haymarket, Shaftesbury Avenue, Wandsworth, 02, and Wood Green, as well as touring to Bradford's National Media Museum and Glasgow Film Theatre.

Some highlights from 2013 included - the UK Premieres of Cannes hits Monsoon Shootout and Bombay Talkies; rare Masterclasses by two internationally acclaimed film personalities - award-winning Director Adoor Gopalakrishnan and Actor Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi, Slum Dog Millionaire). We also welcomed the first Pakistani and Gujarati films to the festival including the first international premiere of The Good Road which is now India's 2014 Oscar entry. Sold out screenings included the Satyajit Ray Foundation Short Film Competition short-list, while the World Premiere of Kannada language film Lucia, and subsequent LIFF Audience Award, created such a media buzz in India that the film went on to box office success!

Publicity for the festival has been truly world class with the festival punching above its weight and gathering a staggering 61 million PR reach with coverage in media including BBC World TV, ZEE TV, Guardian, Times, Times of India, Bollywood Hungama, BBC Radio London, The Metro, to name but a few. We were pleased to welcome our new Major Sponsor O2 International Sim, and on-going fantastic support from partners including BFI, Cineworld, Grange Hotels, ICA, BAFTA, Satyajit Ray Foundation and ZEE TV. Other new partners included Technicolor and Santx Ltd.

Our Programming team is now scouring the Indian sub-continent to bring together a carefully curated slate of quality films by some of the world's most innovative and challenging filmmakers.
See you in Summer 2014!
