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.

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.
