The London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival (LLGFF) takes place every spring in London, England. It began as a season of gay and lesbian films at the National Film Theatre in 1986 and 1987 under the title "Gay's Own Pictures", curated by Peter Packer of the Tyneside Cinema, and was renamed the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival in 1988. Having been a two week festival for many years, the festival was shortened to a week in 2011, then increased to 10 days in 2012.

Organised and run by the British Film Institute, all LLGFF screenings take place in the BFI Southbank. Every summer, a selection of feature films and short films shown at the Festival goes on tour around the UK.
