Festival start: 28 November 2020      Festival end: 29 November 2020

Serving as a Premier Film Festival, the Lakecity International Film Festival (LCIFF) held in Delhi was founded to showcase the leaders in contemporary film making, and aims to exhibit the most captivating and innovative content. The Biggest Event in the Capital, the two day LCIFF 2020 festival is slated to happen on November 28th / 29thd 2020.

Festival Mission:
Breaking all stereotypes, LCIFF's mission is to present quality films from around the world as well as support, recognize and honor indie film makers. These films will be organized thematically, in hopes of representing the full range of the human experience as reflected by our chosen filmmakers. LCIFF will also be a vital showcase for indie short film makers as the festival has a PSA Films Category in addition to its competitive sections.

Festival Objectives:
Though film festivals have became a regular affair in most countries yet most of them cater only to selected audience as well as entertain the commercially successful film makers and related personalities. However, LCIFF intends to organize a festival that connects the film fans & movies goers with the world, especially the serious filmmaker & their associates so as to bring about greater understanding of the art of film making.

The two day festival will see people of various communities thronging the venue to enjoy films from countries including Germany, Italy, UK, USA, Russia, Bangladesh, Iran, Poland in English and the country's own languages. Indian regional language films like Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Bhojpuri, and in south Indian language including Malayalam, Tamil, Telegu and Kanada will be showcased.

NEW RULES:
Apart from the REGULAR CATEGORIES of SUBMISSION that include FEATURE FILMS / SHORT FILMS / DOCUMENTARIES & MUSIC VIDEO, we at LCIFF have created a special new Category for WEB SERIES.
