UK Asian Film festival

4 May @ 6:00 pm - 14 May @ 6:45 pm BST


UK Asian Film Festival – the world’s longest running South Asian film festival – has unveiled its programme for its 25th anniversary edition.  Running at venues across London, Leicester, Manchester and Glasgow from Thursday 4th – Sunday 14th May, UK Asian Film Festival is presented by Tongues on Fire and is supported by the BFI and Arts Council England, both awarding funds from the National Lottery, as well as support from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

The ‘Celebrating Our Stories’ theme of the festival’s silver jubilee year will present a curation of film stories centring on the British Asian experience – redefining and reimagining one’s roots and dreams in a foreign land – and will celebrate the individuality and uniqueness of trans generational, South Asian migrant stories.  UK Asian Film Festival is powered by broadcast partners, SONY TV and Lyca Radio; and TV Partner for UKAFF Short Film Competition is Shorts TV
