ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The 13th London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) will again be held on 23-30 September 2022 in London at the Rio and Vue Cinema

The festival will have a pre-selected programme of 31 films that have been released between 2021-2022.

“We will be showcasing the latest and best new Kurdish film releases that were not given the opportunity to shine during the pandemic,” the LKFF said in a press release.

Moreover, the LKFF will also host a Q&A, gala event, parties, and an award ceremony all in the name of celebrating Kurdish culture and cinema.

“I am very pleased with this year selection of films and I hope viewers will also enjoy the films this year,” Ferhan Sterk, the London Kurdish Film Festival director, said in the press release.

“We organised such a special edition to remind all viewers the taste of Kurdistan as a one, with unique special stories that will take us back to where we come from. We are going to bring the culture back to big screens and communicate with other communities in London.”

Launched in 2001, the London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) is one of the biggest Kurdish film festivals, bringing together films from Kurdistan to audiences in London.

Also last year in April, the LKFF organized the first-ever Global Kurdish Film Festival online, due to the pandemic.

London Kurdish film festival

London Kurdish film festival’s in-person edition is set to kick off on Friday after it went online due to the coronavirus pandemic in the past two years

In its 13th year, the London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) will start displaying 31 films comprising 15 feature fiction and 16 short films for one week.

Programming Assistant Shler Murdochy told Rudaw's Pasar Faiq on Tuesday that the festival is being held with the support of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and will screen Kurdish films produced between 2021 and this year.

The KRG is one of LKFF's seven partners.

It will open with feature fiction Ciran, or Neighbor to connect the audience with the Syrian tragedy while a feature documentary about Yazidis will be displayed for the closing on September 30.

The festival is also continuing with its tradition of awards where its juries will deliberate on seven different film categories, including best actor and actress.

LKFF moved online because of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

Last year it partnered with 10 other Kurdish film festivals around the world, including Sulaimani, northeast Syria (Rojava), Moscow, and Los Angeles, and held the Global Kurdish Film Festival online where more than 100 Kurdish films were available to watch for free.

LKFF was launched in 2001 to bring together films from across the Kurdish regions and the rest of the world to film audiences in London.
