Europe’s largest South Asian film festival returns for a second time to Birmingham bringing you a carefully curated selection of the very best new Indian and South Asian independent cinema, which includes feature films and documentaries by both acclaimed and new filmmakers. The films screened are in a wide range of South Asian languages to reflect the linguistic diversity of Birmingham’s Indian and South Asian communities and all films are subtitled in English.

We promise that whatever movie you decide to attend, you will be entertained, informed and perhaps even a little shocked! For more information, visit

Enjoy the festival!
