Welcome to LIFF 2021

You can watch in cinemas in London, Birmingham, and Manchester, or on your own sofa at home, via our digital site www.LoveLIFFatHome.com, that is accessible anywhere in the United Kingdom.

Younger people often challenge and change the world with fresh ideas and open hearts. We present a clutch of new films that depict young South Asians, some are joyous while others present youth facing and overcoming real-life challenges in South Asia today.
GREAT BRITISH ASIANS
In this year of new realities and images of Britishness, it’s important and indeed vital to consider the South Asian contribution to modern Britain. This is clearly seen in films and arts of the last 4 decades. LIFF here presents a showcase of some epic films of the past, capturing our unique journey, as well as celebrating bright new emerging talent. Catch talks in cinemas and online with some of our greatest talents.
LIFF showcases independent films, which celebrate depictions of ordinary lives through fiction and documentaries. This year we screen a selection of films that show glimpses of real life in the sub-continent and Asian diaspora, which are sometimes challenging, sometimes feel good, even comic, but always compelling.

In this difficult time, we are mindful of the impact of production shutting down in India and are working with the Producers Guild of India to support their Relief Fund initiative for daily wage workers. Please help us support these workers. Any donation, no matter how small will make a difference. Thank you.
