The Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF) has received an overwhelming response with entries coming in from across five continents - – North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Submissions of entries for the first ever LIFF opened on January 1, 2012 and since then entries have already come in from across the globe.  

LIFF has partnered with organization (Inheritance India) working in the areas of carbon foot print offsets and ethical practices towards the environment and its ecosystem. LIFF aspires to be the first ever “Green Film Festival” which also incorporates a 360 degree initiative and set up a system and practices in Ladakh.

To boost the participation of Indian citizens and contribute to the tourism of Ladakh, the Ladakh International Film Festival partners with J&K Tourism, Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC- Leh), The Grand Dragon Ladakh and Inheritance India. To savior the cause of protecting the endangered species of the snow leopard and to develop an insight for the conservation of the species, Ladakh International Film Festival partners with Snow Leopard Conservancy India Trust (SLC-IT). To promote film screenings and the festival ideology, LIFF also partners with South Asian Film Festival (SAFF-Canada).

Monassé presents the highest altitude film festival of the world. At 13,500 ft above the sea level, we endeavor to delight the people around the world to come and get exposed to the best of the world cinema in the magical Land of Ladakh. Chaired by Shri Shyam Benegal, this festival will definitely make a mark around the world. The endeavor is to draw attention to Ladakh whose pristine beauty & spell bound magic equals to the splendor and grandeur of cinema. As Ladakh is growing as a world tourist destination the focus is on environment and ecological balance. We have SNOW LEOPARD as our Mascot. Celebrating the brilliance, excellence and passion which we call as CINEMA! Is what LIFF is all about!

Festival team will be leaving no stone unturned to ensure that content quality is nothing less than the best. Making Ladakh, a melting point for cross cultural cinematic experience to be cherished by all in years to come. The first ever completely green International film festival in India with a vision of “model state Ladakh”.

Ladakh lies in a very ecologically fragile region of the world. It requires to be protected from potential environmental damage and placed on the road to sustainability if it is to conserve its pristine and special place in the world's ecology.

LIFF is a unique opportunity to do two things at one time:

  • Use the event to point attention to Ladakh's special place in the world and the need to conserve its ecological status.
  • Use the event to show that Ladakh and its handling of a big event like LIFF can be an international example for the world - and this can be done through creation of Ladakh's own carbon offset model defined by the Ladakhis as a prototype for the world leading from LIFF's implementation during the event.
