Welcome to the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival
Europe's largest South Asian film festival returns for its seventh edition in ten great cinemas across London and this year also screening synchronously in two cinemas in Birmingham.
We aim to bring you a carefully curated selection of the very best new Indian and South Asian independent cinema, which includes feature films, documentaries and short films by both acclaimed and new filmmakers. This year many of our films are by women directors – see our 'Women with a Movie Camera' debate at BFI.
Audience participation is welcome! Please ask questions at the many Q&A’s with visiting filmmakers & stars and don't forget to fill in voting slips for your favourite film, to help it win the coveted LIFF Audience Award!
The films screened are in a wide range of South Asian languages to reflect the linguistic diversity of the UK's Indian and South Asian communities and all films are subtitled in English.
We are delighted to welcome back our supporters including Title Sponsor the Bagri Foundation, who share our passion for South Asian arts and culture, and on-going essential support from Major Sponsor Pure Heaven (Sun Mark Ltd), the wonderful Grange Hotels and Cineworld Cinemas who have supported us since year one. A big thanks to the BFI for their ongoing grant funding and for taking us online. This year selected LIFF films will appear on the BFI Player for the first time.
We promise that whatever movie you decide to attend, you will be entertained, informed and perhaps even a little shocked!
