My support for and patronage of LIFF has been vindicated as the festival has grown into the world’s largest and most successful festival for South Asian films. Showcasing rich and exceptional talent, I am delighted to have been part of the recognition and exposure of Asian films to a UK audience, initially focussed on London, drawing attention and critical acclaim to filmmakers and the diverse range and depth of their films. You will always see insightful and thought-provoking films at LIFF: a wonderful addition to the vibrancy of London’s cultural and arts offering.
