London Independent Film Festival

A festival dedicated to showcasing new emerging film talent.

About

The Festival organised and programmed by filmmakers is the premier event for micro-budget and no-budget films in the UK and one of Europe's top indie film fests. Special attention is given to the screening of films by first and second time directors, films shot with budgets under £100,000 ($200,000 US) and quality films that - for whatever reason - are unlikely to receive distribution through other channels. And as filmmaking is a collaborative enterprise, LIFF puts serious effort and planning into providing pub and entertainment venues, social get-together spaces, and mingling parties.
