Become a Tongues on Fire Friend!

Tongues on Fire is a not-for-profit organisation that focuses all energies on showcasing great cinema with an Asian flavour from all over the world. Our annual film festival includes feature films, documentaries, short films, panel discussions, workshops and community screenings. Tongues on Fire can only do this through the fantastic support we get from our Friends. We are always very grateful for this support and in return we strive to bring inspiring and engaging events throughout the year and especially during the London Asian Film Festival in March every year.

“If it wasn’t for TOF, many of the wonderful films they’re showing would not be seen at all. The whole festival is a labour of love for the organisers, so I hope audiences show a little back and go and support this fantastic annual event.” (Meera Syal, TOF Patron)

“Tongues on Fire is a very important Festival. A breath of fresh air which is frequently needed. I believe men and women directors can learn from each other.” (Shabana Azmi, actress, TOF 1999)

“We should all support Tongues on Fire because they open up doors for films that may never be seen outside of India.” (Mahima Choudhry, actress, TOF 2008)
