London Migration Film Festival (LMFF) 2018 takes place from 29 November to 5 December. The festival includes a great number of fiction, short and documentary films focusing on the intersection of migration with themes such as integration, race, politics, family, traditions, friendship, gender, activism, war, return and displacement, among others.
The goal of LMFF is to display the diversity, nuance and subjective experience of migration – including and beyond the refugee experience – in order to restore the dignity and humanity inherent within it. Films include well known artists and directors, such as Wajib by Annemarie Jacir as well as films by less known filmmakers who have used new perspectives to analyse migration and refugee issues, such as Royal Cafe by Tenzin Dazel.
The festival will be hosted in eight venues across London: the School of Oriental and African Studies, Genesis Cinema, Somerset House, The Lexi Cinema, Migration Museum Project, Upstairs at the Ritzy, Deptford Cinema and Peckham Springs.
