The South Asian Film Society at SOAS is a celebration of South Asian films and a space for all SOAS students to discover the magic of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Nepali and diasporic cinema ...rekindle their love... or show their already burning passion for films from South Asia!!!
The South Asian Film Society began as the Bollywood Society in March 2011. Since then, we have grown from strength to strength. We became the South Asian Film Society (SAFS) in July 2012. This society has become an important part of SOAS through the cultural events at Holi and Diwali, the film screenings and party nights. We had the opportunity to have our own Bollywood Radio show with SOAS radio- where we interviewed Rishi Kapoor for one of our episodes. We have been fortunate to meet and dine with Shabana Azmi and host a talk at Tongues on Fire Film festival.
