Welcome to The Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival
London Indian Film Festival returns for its 6th year from 16 - 26 July with some of the most prestigious and thought-provoking new independent films from the Indian sub-continent.
We welcome our new Title Sponsor the Bagri Foundation, a charity that promotes the best of Indian arts through its diverse cultural programmes. The Foundation's aims have a great synergy with LIFF and we look forward our partnership for this year’s festival.
There’s also a warm welcome back to our regular Major Partners Sun Mark Ltd and their Pure Heaven brand, Grange Hotels, Cineworld and the British Film Institute (BFI) and we thank them for their on-going support and belief in us.
We are delighted that Technicolor are on board again for mastering our films ready for exhibition at our regular cinema venues ICA, BFI Southbank, Cineworld Haymarket, Wembley, Wood Green, Wandsworth and O2.
For the first time we will also be in Birmingham with screenings of select films at Cineworld Broad Street in central Birmingham and the Midlands Arts Centre (MAC). We look forward to also welcoming our Media Partners including the BBC, ZEE TV, Desiblitz.com and Bollyspice.
Our full programme launches online on 22nd June so you can start planning which great films you would like to see, and of course we look forward to seeing you at our red carpet Opening Night Gala on Thursday 16th July. Tickets will be on sale directly from the cinema venues after the programme has been announced.
