Launched in 2001, the London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) is the biggest film festival of its kind, bringing together films from four parts of Kurdistan and the rest of the world to film audiences in London.
A non-profit charity organisation led by a team of volunteers, LKFF has come a long way since it’s inception, leaving behind 9 successful festivals, each growing in magnitude and significance.
As the London Kurdish Film Festival, we believe cinema is a powerful and influential form of artistic expression and one which carries great importance for Kurds, who have, like all oppressed nations, transformed cinema into a tool for emancipation and self-expression.
At a time when the existence, culture and art of the Kurdish people is under threat, the London Kurdish Film Festival provides a pivotal platform for Kurdish and non-Kurdish filmmakers to showcase films of any style, topic and genre which highlight the experiences and struggles facing Kurds across the world and in doing so, perhaps, granting a meaning beyond it’s artistic pretence.
The continuing rise in Kurdish film production has also meant
that there are now more films covering critical topics and telling
even more compelling stories, which are of a higher quality than
As the London Kurdish Film Festival, we will continue to serve as a showcase event for Kurdish cinema, and strive to contribute to the growth and development of the Kurdish film industry by nurturing and rewarding exceptional Kurdish talent and cinema from the region and around the world.
The London Kurdish Film Festival is looking for volunteers to join the team!
We need talented, hardworking and dedicated people who are looking to gain work experience whilst broadening their film knowledge to help us make the 10th festival a memorable one.
LKFF would not be possible without the support of our festival volunteers, who assist with various activities including hospitality, meeting and greeting guests, signposting, providing support and information. The contribution of our volunteers helps make the festival happen.
