WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?Jodhaa Akbar

The UK and Europe’s largest Indian and South Asian film festival has this year been profiled by both the UK government agencies, the British Council and the Indian High Commission, as a major flagship in the delivery of the cultural element of the UK-India Year of Culture. The festival has joined forces with the BFI for their year-long India on Film programme at BFI Southbank and online via BFI Player.

 Satyajit Ray Short Film Competition

The short film programme is a celebration of new filmmaking talent that explores themes of South Asian experience. Many previous winners of this award have successfully developed their careers and moved into making feature films, including young director Shubhashish Bhutiani, who has followed up his 2014 award-winning short film Kush with a highly anticipated and charming debut feature Hotel Salvation, which will screen at LIFF this year. The Satyajit Ray Foundation’s Short Film Competition has joined the festival and the winning filmmaker will receive a £1,000 award.

OPENING FILM

The Black Prince by Kavi Raz will open the festival this year. This UK-produced film was launched at Cannes, and stars Satinder Sartaaj, Shabana Azmi, Jason Flemyng and Amanda Root. The film dramatises the little-known story of the last King of Punjab, who was abducted by the British Raj to be mentored by Queen Victoria.

Sexy Durga, a Malayalam thriller road movie set in Kerala and directed by Sanal Kumar Sasidharan, won the prestigious Tiger Award for Best Film at Rotterdam this year. A tale of a hitch-hiking couple accidentally getting into the car of deranged gangsters and trying to escape a road to hell.
