NEW DELHI: The Second Ladakh International Film Festival (LIFF), which was postponed due to the massive human tragedy in Uttarakhand caused by floods and landslide, is now being held in September.



Although Leh had remained unaffected by the tragedy, the Festival slated for early July had been postponed in solidarity, LIFF Festival Director Melwyn Williams Chirayath told indiantelevision.com.



The Festival will now be held from 13 to 15 September in Leh, Ladakh. Chirayath said the festival details and programme schedule remain the same as previously decided.



The festival will be inaugurated by Jammu & Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah.



Earlier, it had been announced that a total of 115 films from 15 countries will be screened at the Festival. The films will be screened in five screens in Leh, according to Chirayath.



The jury for LIFF 2013 will be headed by well known actor/director Aparna Sen while members are Paul Smaczny (Emmy winner), Mathew Robbins (Palm d'Or), Vimukhti Jayasundara (Palm d'Or), Alireza Shahrokhi (Iran) & Teri McLuhan (Canada).



In addition, there will be a retrospective on lyricist-filmmaker Gulzaar by director/producer Vishal Bharadwaj who had got his first major break in the former's Maachis.



There is a section celebrating women through some of the finest women oriented films made in India.



A major highlight is the green carpet premiere at LIFF 2013 of Teri Mc Luhan's documentary Frontier Gandhi, on the forgotten freedom fighter, nationalist and peace advocate Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan. There will also be a special children's section curated by Amole Gupte, Chairperson of the Children's Film Society, India, which will feature six children's films.
