Not Just Bollywood is a year long season of films dedicated to showcasing contemporary Indian independent cinema. Each year we delve in to the fascinating work of independent South Asian filmmakers, focusing on themes from the emergence of the ‘Hindie’, to representations of caste, to some of the best examples of Indian independent films directed by women, linking to our 2019 programme Celebrating Women in Global Cinema.
Through Not Just Bollywood, we broaden access of alternative South Asian cinema, generate cultural discourse on a number of socio-political issues and develop an academic output including guest speakers and conferences.
Look out for films throughout the year, as well as our special September showcase.
