All ready for the opening of London Kurdish Film Festival on 16 April
The London Kurdish Film Festival will celebrate its 12th edition online with the first ever Global Kurdish Film Festival.
Ferhan Sterk, director of London Kurdish Film Festival Ferhan Sterk talked about the theme and programme of the 12th LKFF to be held between 16 and 27 April to journalist Eren Kansoy.
The London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) is the biggest film festival of its kind, bringing together films from Kurdistan and the rest of the world to film audiences in London.
The London Kurdish Film Festival returns this year online with its 12th edition, celebrating its 20th anniversary with a significant commitment to uniting Kurdish film festivals around the world by presenting the first-ever Global Kurdish Film Festival Online Edition.
The London Kurdish Film Festival was established in 2001 by a team of young filmmakers from Kurdistan who got together in London. It is the biggest film festival of its kind, bringing together films from Kurdistan and the rest of the world to audiences in London.
LKFF plays a significant role in increasing access to the international films made by Kurdish filmmakers or on themes related to Kurds made by any director for the UK audiences. Not only does it bring together films on Kurds across the Middle East including Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey, it also functions as a platform that brings together the Middle Eastern and Western audiences to broaden the cultural dialogue between different communities in the UK.
Peace in Kurdistan Campaign in collaboration with Medya Haber TV and Sterk TV supports London Kurdish Film Festival.
