Since 2007 the LIDF has worked to ensure that London is host to exciting, diverse, challenging and inspiring films from every corner of the world. The LIDF is committed to providing a platform for international documentaries and their directors. It does this by working with globally recognised partners and venues, such as the British Museum, the Barbican Centre, and the Royal Society of the Arts on a year-round programme of screenings and other events.
The LIDF’s ongoing commitment to what it calls ‘Conversations in Film’ creates a unique kind of film festival. The films within LIDF are the starting point for a series of programmed ‘conversations’ – panel discussions and workshops – that bring diverse audiences together to go beyond the films themselves in order to engage with social, cultural and political issues in the company of policy makers, academics, journalists and other cultural commentators.
