Preview: London Indian Film Festival

LSDIndia.jpg The London Indian Film Festival is here to show you there's more to their industry than Bollywood and Slumdog. Find out what's really at the cutting edge of Indian film at the launch tonight with the premiere of Love, Sex Aur Dhoka featuring the industry's first ever on-screen sex scene.

The Festival covers programme spans family dramas, coming-of age tales and twisted urban romance and seeks to show "a new more assured Indian cool".

Other highlights of the festival include City of Gold looking at poverty and corruption in the capital and Last Chance Mumbai which sounds a bit like Crash set in modern Mumbai rather than LA but then stories of interconnections across mega-cities are irresistible story fodder and Road to Sangam, tapping into the Gandhi legacy.

You can also check out the festival's short film awards.

London Indian Film Festival runs from 15-20 July 2010 at various venues. Check the website for details and booking.
