Birmingham Indian Film Festival to showcase a selection of films that you can enjoy with all the family

A friend of mine works tirelessly to host and promote the Birmingham Indian Film Festival (BIFF) and there is a great line up of family friendly films worth catching, so I wanted to share the festival's latest updates with you in case you are looking for something different, educational and cultural to enjoy from just a few days' time...





Birmingham Indian Film Festival is a cinematic treasure trove of carefully curated premieres of South Asian independent films, offering rare glimpses into some of the billion plus lives in the sub-continent.  

The festival is presented by the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival and returns for its fourth consecutive year at Cineworld Broad Street, mac Birmingham and The Mockingbird Cinema & Kitchen from Friday 22 June to Sunday 1 July.

Audiences can expect a spectacular 10 days of Midland premieres of feature films, documentaries and shorts exploring a compelling slate of controversial, entertaining and thought-provoking themes with global resonances, plus lively Q&As and panel debates.

New to this year is the annual LIFF Satyajit Ray Short Film Competition Entries showcasing the work of emerging film makers.
