Kingston International Film Festival (KIFF) was launched in 2022 with the long-term ambition to build the festival into an internationally recognised event that showcases the work of the world’s leading independent filmmakers, as well as becoming the premier platform for discovering remarkable new British talent.
Who better to join our current patrons, award-winning director Mike Newell and award-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave than rising young British star India Amarteifio.
When asked if she would join Mike Newell and Dame Vanessa Redgrave as Patrons to KIFF, India said: “Thrilled to be part of KIFF. I’m really looking forward to watching local talent and championing emerging artists”.

All communication between myself and the KIFF team has been exceptional. They've gone above and beyond in their efforts to support and encourage. The events they put on, Key Speakers and the awards ceremony, was world class. I urge any filmmaker to enter your film next year.
