"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.”
Kalli Jaff, the Marketing, Media and PR Manager for the festival told Kurdistan 24 that the "festival has always been a celebration of Kurdish culture and cinema, so we’re extremely excited to celebrate this in person with our much valued, and respected film makers."
"The 13th edition of the London Kurdish Film Festival has been well anticipated by our supporters as it returns to the silver screen."
"Unfortunately LKFF is only being shown in person this year, however we warmly welcome our international guests," she concluded.
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.
