That’s a wrap on LIFF 2022

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported this year’s festival which took place in cinemas across London, online at, and at our sister festivals in Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

This year, we have had a march of high level Indian talent to the festival which has been difficult to ignore, helmed by our world premiere of enfant terrible director Anurag Kashyap’s Dobaaraa with Bollywood stars Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati on the red carpet. The tour de force of female indie actor-director greats Aparna Sen, Nandita Das and Konkona Sen Sharma, plus British icon Meera Syal, strongly cemented the image of the festival as the sole destination for intellectually, stimulating but entertaining debate, with young women in particular stating that the Q&As and ‘In Conversations’ had deeply inspired them. All in all we have had a record year.

We look forward to seeing you next year and in case you missed out, you can still watch our “Special Guests In Conversation” interviews and much more on

Cary Rajinder Sawhney MBE, Executive & Programming Director of LIFF
