“Southall Black Sisters joined forces with UKAFF to hold a mini-film festival to celebrate SBS’s 40th anniversary year in 2019. The team at UKAFF were brilliant, efficient and totally supportive of our goals. The found the right venue for us and ensured that everything proceeded according to plan.”

“Apart from the wider social and political concerns that  shape the work of UKAFF, their curation of films is bold, innovative and non-sectarian. Their dedication to showing the best films produced on the sub-continent enriches the cultural life of the South Asian diaspora and British audiences in general. Long may they continue!”
