London Indian Film FestivalThere's cause for celebration at this year's London Indian Film Festival, which commemorates 100 years of Indian cinema. A century ago, on 3rd May 1913, marked the release of the silent film 'Raja Harishchandra', considered to be the first Indian feature film produced. 100 years on and India is now the world's largest democracy, second largest population and also the world's most prolific film producing nation (releasing around 1,000 pictures a year - that's twice as many as Hollywood). LIFF aims to dispel the myth that this is an industry is confined to the Bollywood stereotype by putting on a far-reaching programme of events that includes thrillers, dramas, comedies, short films, documentaries and - of course - its fair share of song-and-dance blockbusters. LIFF is held at the BFI Southbank and selected cinemas all over the capital. You can also expect seminars, Q&As and live music events throughout the eight-day bonanza.

About BFI Southbank

Originally the National Film Theatre, the BFI Southbank is the perfect film buff's cinema, with three large screens and a smaller studio space showing up to 2000 films a year ranging from classics to independent movies as well as gala openings. It's also the heart of London's many film festivals, and the place to go to see obscure arts films, classics, and seasons of works by great directors. More about BFI Southbank
