The world’s longest running South Asian film festival outside India, UK Asian Film Festival, has announced its Full Programme for its 23rd edition. At a time of global unrest and displacement, the curation of this year’s festival is inspired by the theme ‘Ray Of Hope’.
This year’s line-up highlights stories of resilience and bravery, celebrating those who take a stand against oppression and injustice. At a time of great division and inequality, this year’s festival content will feature characters, stories and storytellers that strive for a better world through films that highlight inclusivity, kindness and, above all, empathy.
UK Asian Film Festival, presented by Tongues on Fire, historically showcases South Asian feminist films and the work of pioneering female artists and auteurs. The festival will run in venues across London, Coventry and specifically Friday 4 – Saturday 5 June in Leicester, as well as on the Modern Films website.
